Reports: Adrian Peterson Is Heading To New Orleans
We brought you the news a couple of weeks ago that the Saints and Adrian Peterson were close to a deal after he visited the team in New Orleans. Now it sounds like the deal is getting done:

This could be incredible for the Saints, and it also appears they’re going all-in on the last few years of Drew Brees’ career. Adding an NFL MVP to this roster is a huge upgrade, especially when teaming him with Mark Ingram. Neither back will get tired out through the season, and AP could be a BEAST come playoff time.
Sources: #Saints & Adrian Peterson believed to be closing in on a deal that’d pay him $3M+ in ’17. Not done, but moving in that direction.
