Report: Saints set to host running back Adrian Peterson next week

NEW ORLEANS (WAFB) - The New Orleans Saints will host free agent running back Adrian Peterson next week.

Former Saints fullback and current NFL Network analyst Heath Evans was the first to break the news.


The 11 year pro out of Oklahoma played in only three games last season for the Vikings due to a knee injury.

Peterson has totaled 2,418 carries for 11,747 yards, a 4.9 average in his 10 seasons with Minnesota.

The running back did play 16 games in 2015, carrying the ball 327 times for 1,485 yards.

The Saints may be looking for running back depth after Tim Hightower signed with the San Francisco 49ers last week.
