Saints Could Be Adding RB Adrian Peterson In Free Agency, Which Means Mark Ingram Could Be Available

The New Orleans Saints are negotiating with former-Vikings running back Adrian Peterson. According to an NFL Network report, the Saints are offering more than $3 million to the rusher for the 2017 season.

 

If the deal goes through, it would leave the Saints’ starter last year, Mark Ingram, in a tough situation. Peterson would probably lock up the starting position and bench Ingram, leaving the latter back most likely questioning his future in New Orleans.

 

The Saints could definitely find a trade partner, but probably won’t be looking for picks, as they already received an abundance from the Patriots for wide out Brandin Cooks. So they could be looking to receive a player to fill needs at guard, cornerback or defensive line. Even though the Saints have Cameron Jordan, they have no one else even half decent, leaving him stranded in double-teams with no one to take advantage.

 

The Saints could definitely rebuild nicely with the signing of Peterson if they play it right, but it’s still a question if AP even will sign the contract, let alone beat Ingram to start.
