Adrian Peterson is expected to be looking for a new home next season. The Minnesota Vikings are expected to release him.
If he cannot restrict his $18 million salary for next season, the team will cut ties with him. The Dallas Cowboys, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, are an option for Peterson.
The Cowboys have previously shown an interest in him. Even when he was suspended for beating his son, the Cowboys were interested.
However, if he did go there, he would no longer be the starter. Ezekiel Elliott, the first-team All-Pro — who just completed his first year — would be the starter, while Peterson would be the back-up — if he would sign there.
Peterson would likely sign with a team, like the New York Giants, where he has a good chance to start instead of being a back-up. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have also been linked to him.
The Bucs also have a mess at their running back position. Doug Martin — who was the starter — has been suspended and will miss the first two games of the 2017 season due to the suspension. Jacquizz Rodgers was the team’s leading scorer.
Rodgers had 560 rushing yards with two touchdowns in 10 games, including five starts. Martin, in eight starts, had 421 yards and three touchdowns.
