Patriots Likely To Keep Malcolm Butler

25 April 2017, 12:53 | Gerardo Harmon

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Peterson is expected to sign with the New Orleans Saints on a deal that will pay him around $3 million in 2017.

Even if Peterson manages to supplant Ingram as the starter, he still has to prove he can stay healthy and regain his form from two seasons ago with a new team at an advanced age. Ingram has improved significantly in the passing game over the past two years, which would theoretically position Peterson to concentrate on early-down runs and high-leverage situations such as third-and-short and goal-line carries. He has long said he believes he can play deep into his 30s. There were a couple of other possible landing spots for him after being released by the Minnesota Vikings, but none of them ended up working out.

He has also visited with the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks while looking for the right spot to continue his Hall of Fame career.

Unless they select a running back later this week at the NFL Draft, it seems the Giants' depth chart will remain the same concerning the position. That would be a huge cut from the $12 million he made last season with the Vikings. He signed with the San Francisco 49ers last week.

-Running back Mike Gillislee signed with the Patriots after the Buffalo Bills decided not to match the two-year contract offer.


Speculation regarding free agent running back Adrian Peterson and the Green Bay Packers may soon come to an anticlimactic end.

While New Orleans goes old (Peterson is 32) and redundant for a name everyone knows, New England went for its latest ideal situational back.

It is now highly unlikely Butler will be traded, sources confirmed to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

An undrafted free agent out of Nebraska, Compton appeared in one game with Washington in 2013 but has missed just one game over the past three seasons.
