Former league-MVP Adrian Peterson could be looking for a new home this offseason.
Peterson, who played for the Minnesota Vikings for the last 10 seasons, is under contract for $18 million and at age 31, the Vikings may feel like it’s time to move on from Peterson.
Knowing his time in Minnesota might be up, Peterson has named three teams that he could be interested in signing with if the Vikings do indeed release him:
The 31-year-old, a seven-time Pro Bowler and the league’s MVP in 2012, has spent 10 years with the Vikings. Peterson said if he were to enter free agency that he would want to go to a team with an opportunity to compete for the Super Bowl. He said he would want to play for a team with a good defense, a good offensive scheme and a great coaching staff.
“There’s a couple teams out there that I’ve thought about. … New York was one of them that popped up, Tampa Bay, lot of different teams. Houston would be a good spot,” Peterson said. “I’ll stop right there. … I’m just throwing random names out there.”
It should be an interesting off season.
