Adrian Peterson may have finally found a home.
Peterson, who entered the National Football League with Minnesota in 2007, is the leading rusher in team history with 11,747 yards.
Not only did Peterson turn 32 last month, but he's coming off another major knee surgery and he's bad as a pass-catcher and pass-blocker. Aside from those two years, Ingram has never topped 13 games in a season.
Peterson, a four-time first-team AP All-Pro and seven-time Pro Bowler, has rushed for 11,747 yards and 97 touchdowns in his career. With the draft coming up, teams with a need at running back will be selecting young rookies instead of signing oft-injured veterans. But the Saints have three picks in the first two rounds of this week's draft, and five in the first three rounds. He went on to have one of the greatest RB seasons ever, piling up 2,097 rushing yards and averaging 6 yards per carry, finishing just 9 yards short of Eric Dickerson's single-season record. The same thing happened the week before when he visited the New England Patriots and departed their facility without a contract signed. Like most historic running backs before him, Peterson has yet to secure that elusive Super Bowl title.
The Saints and Peterson are still talking about a contract, Jeff Duncan of the Times-Picayune reports.
The Vikings moved on from the 32-year-old running back this offseason, instead signing former Raider Latavius Murray.
Mixon, the former Oklahoma running back who was involved in a highly publicized domestic violence case, is not on the team's draft board, the Atlanta-Journal Constitution reported.
It is now highly unlikely Butler will be traded, sources confirmed to ESPN's Adam Schefter. He started three games before his injury in a November 13 game at Washington.
