Adrian Peterson to visit Patriots on Monday

Adrian Peterson to visit Patriots on Mondayā€¯

Adrian Peterson is set to meet with the defending Super Bowl champions.

After failing to secure a deal in the early period of National Football League free agency, running back Adrian Peterson will reportedly continue his tour of possible destinations for next season in an intriguing location: New England.

The visit is Peterson's second since the Vikings released him March 9.

Peterson, 32, spent the first 10 years of his career with the Vikings, in which he rushed for over 1000 yards in seven of his ten seasons.

Police department brass say the vast majority of the killings are tied to the gang-fueled drug trade in those areas. Patrice L Calvin was discovered shot in the head at around noon in an apartment in the 7500 block of S.

He said he let the Patriots coaching staff know right after the season concluded with the Pats' fifth Super Bowl title that he'd be looking elsewhere.

Adrian Peterson reportedly is visiting the Patriots on Monday.

Peterson, 32, played just three games last season because of a torn meniscus suffered on September 18.

While Peterson is a great fit for New England, there's no guarantee he will like it.

That said, it's unusual that this injury is popping up now, because Nurkic has looked perfectly healthy the last few games. Nurkic dunked off a low-post move to put Portland on top 107-105 with 2:05 left, and the Blazers led the rest of the way.

Peterson is a free agent and has been on the market since free agency began early last month.

He logged 37 carries for 72 yards without a score. With team owner Robert Kraft last week maintaining his strong stance against domestic violence abusers, with the implication Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon was off the table draft-wise, it's interesting if Peterson would even be allowed in, if it got that far.

The Patriots don't have an every down power back, per se, but do have a good complement of backs in Dion Lewis, James White, Rex Burkhead and D.J. Foster.
