Adrian Peterson’s time with the Minnesota Vikings looks to be coming to an end, as his cap number is set to be $18,000,000 in 2017, and as nobody is willing to pay that much for a running back who will be 32-years-old in March and has had injury issues throughout his career so the Vikings will likely be forced to release Peterson rather than trade him. The seven time Pro Bowl back mentioned earlier this season that if he is released by the Vikings, two teams are at the top of his wish list to play for next, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New York Giants. It seems that Peterson is keeping a watchful eye on the Giants offseason, as he noted on Twitter that the Giants had been making interesting moves, and while the team released wide receiver Victor Cruz the “interesting move” Peterson was probably referencing was the Giants releasing starting running back Rashad Jennings. This leaves a void at running back, one that Adrian Peterson seems interested in filling, and he is sending the Giants signals of his interest. If I was the Giants, I would consider a team friendly short term deal to sign one of the greatest running backs of all-time, to see what he has left in the tank. The Giants still have promising 2016 rookie Paul Perkins and third down specialist Shane Vereen on the roster, but neither is a big back who can carry the load that a healthy Adrian Peterson can. I still think the Giants will draft a running back at some point, but if Peterson is willing to accept a low risk deal, the Giants should consider granting him his wish.
