According to the report; the running back would certainly consider taking a team-friendly deal to sign with the New England Patriots and try to win a Super Bowl.
Peterson would be a great addition to this Patriots team. For those that say he won’t, give me a moment.
Peterson is 31 years old and still has some mileage left in the tank. He would most likely just sign a one year deal at a very friendly contract for the opportunity to showcase he does have something left. Peterson has already made the bulk of his money, now he just wants to win. He would take whatever role to do just that.
Of course Peterson wouldn’t get 30 carries a game here in New England, but that’s ideal for Adrian. He would be called on upon first down, asked to get 5 yards, and that’s it. Why not take a flyer on him?
There’s a lot to be said about a guy that is hungry to win. Before you say ‘no thanks’, there’s a lot more upside to AP, especially if he takes a team friendly deal.
I say get it done.
