Adrian Peterson would be Mark Ingram's backup in New Orleans?

The NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported on Monday that a trade between the Saints and Patriots involving Butler is "unlikely" for both sides, but Butler did work out a potential long-term deal with the Saints in the process.

ESPN would surely love to see the Saints sign Peterson, as their first opponent is the Vikings, on Monday Night Football.

Citing two league sources, the Times-Picayune of New Orleans reported that a deal is near for Peterson, who visited the Saints two weeks ago.

Peterson will have to prove his worth after missing 13 games last season with a knee injury, and prove he'll be OK off the field after missing 15 games in 2014 following child-abuse charges.

It was just last week that Adrian Peterson announced he was willing to take less than $5 million per season, which seriously lowered his asking price.




With the Vikings' offensive line decimated by injuries last fall, the team signed Long in October. He has 11,747 career rushing yards with 97 touchdowns in 10 seasons - 16th on the NFL's all-time list. Meliwonfu was a surprise at the NFL Combine last month and is expected to be drafted somewhere in the late-first or early-second round. Peterson totaled 72 yards on 37 carries.

Many around Packer Nation will be breathing a sigh of relief at this news, as many fans expressed concerns about Peterson and all his baggage coming to Green Bay to fill the team's need at running back.

The Vikings moved on from the 32-year-old running back this offseason, instead signing former Raider Latavius Murray.

The biggest hesitation I have is that Payton himself has repeatedly lauded the depth of this year's running back class in the middle rounds of the draft. Ingram rushed for over 1,000 yards in 2016, becoming the first Saints player to reach that mark since Deuce McAllister in 2006.
