Adrian Peterson Is Signing With The New Orleans Saints

One of the biggest questions this NFL off-season, besides why hasn’t Colin Kaepernick been signed yet, is where Adrian Peterson would land. Well that question was answered this morning.

AP revealed to ESPN’s Josina Anderson that he would be signing with the Saints in a two-year deal.

“I am excited to be joining the New Orleans Saints. I’m really looking forward to this opportunity. Most importantly, I chose this team because it just felt right within my spirit,” Peterson told Anderson. “Additionally, my wife and family added their confirmation with the same feelings. On offense, it goes without saying that the Saints are really solid behind Drew Brees. I feel like my skill set can make them even more dominant as a unit. They have a great offensive line, which is something that stood out to me as well. I could tell from talking to head coach Sean Payton over the last two weeks that he did his due diligence in evaluating how I could contribute. I also did a lot of homework on the defense as well. 

“While I know that injuries have played a role in performance, I also see areas of potential with a lot of younger guys having the ability to step up. Lastly, it goes without saying that the Saints have an amazing fan base and I look forward to making them proud and creating everlasting memories.”

It will be an interesting backfield as Mark Ingram had a good season last year, rushing for over 1,000 yards for the first time in his career while catching almost 50 passes for 319 yards.  

Now only one question remains before the season starts….
