Texans Not Interested In Adrian Peterson

The Texans are now the latest team to deny having interest in Adrian Peterson, as the club reportedly has “never once talked about him,” reports Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com. Reports linking Peterson to Houston have all been generated by the Peterson camp, per Barshop.Adrian Peterson (vertical)

The Patriots, Seahawks, and Giants have also said they’re not pursuing Peterson, while the Raiders are apparently not as interested in a possible union as Peterson is in joining Oakland. Certainly, price could be a factor — Peterson was set to make $18MM in 2017 under his old Vikings contract, and may have difficulty accepting a steep paycut. But given his contract demands and lack of ability to play in the passing game, it could be awhile before Peterson lands a deal.

Peterson, who was limited to only three games in 2016, ranks as PFR’s No. 32 free agent and No. 2 available running back.

    Behind the stout OL of the Raiders I can see him being a 1200 yard 10 TD type of RB. If we get that production at the price he is asking (4-6 million a year) I wouldn’t think twice. Plus he would be a great mentor for the young stud running backs we have in Richards and Washington. Raiders need to step up and pay this man to play in OAK town!
