Draft Scout *Adrian Peterson News
03/24/17 - RB Adrian Peterson is reportedly asking for a premium price on the open market, and teams are not willing to meet the demand. Peterson, who was recently released by the Minnesota Vikings, remains unsigned during free agency and ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported Friday that it is because the asking price is too high. A source from a team in the market for a running back told ESPN that Peterson wanted more than $8 million in the first year of a contract. The Vikings announced last week that the team would not re-sign Peterson, who turned 32 on Tuesday. The Vikings did not pick up Peterson's option year and instead signed former Oakland Raiders running back Latavius Murray in free agency.

Peterson is familiar with Seattle offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, who served in a similar position with the Vikings from 2007-10. Peterson was limited to three games last season because of injuries, rushing for 72 yards on 37 carries. He topped 1,000 yards seven times for the Vikings, including a career-best 2,097 yards in 2012 that rates as the second-best single-season mark in NFL history.
