According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Peterson and the Saints were closing in on a deal that would pay him $3 million in 2017, with the chance to earn another million through incentives.

As luck would have it, the Saints visit Minnesota in Week 1 for a Monday Night Football showdown with Peterson's former Vikings teammates. The Vikings officially moved on from Peterson by signing free agent running back Latavius Murray.

Peterson suffered a knee injury last season in Week 2, which caused him to miss the next 11 games. The latest the Patriots can take a player off the board in Philadelphia come Draft Day will be in the third round or 72 overall. That would be a huge cut from the $12 million he made last season with the Vikings. Mark Ingram is entrenched as the starting running back for next season as he had a great 1,000-yard season in 2016, but New Orleans wanted more.

The Vikings signed Long last October after they had lost tackles Matt Kalil and Andre Smith to season-ending injuries. While there is still a chance that another team offers the Patriots a trade they can not refuse, as Rapoport notes, it seems likely that New England will keep its shutdown cornerback for at least one more season. Under RFA rules, Buffalo receives a fifth-round draft pick from New England in compensation.

AP has reportedly found a new home.

Entering the offseason, the New England Patriots had two defensive cornerstones headed for free agency: linebacker Dont'a Hightower (unrestricted) and cornerback Malcolm Butler (restricted).

In 2014, the running back played just one game after pleading no contest to beating his 4-year-old son with a switch (small tree branch).

Instead, Tampa Bay will probably spend a draft pick on a running back later this week.

Attorney George Leontire told reporters early Monday afternoon that a Bristol Superior Court judge in New Bedford, Mass., ordered the release of the notes to the family, the Boston Globe reported. He started three games before his injury in a November 13 game at Washington.
