New England Patriots unlikely to trade CB Malcolm Butler

Even at 32, Adrian Peterson potentially trading in his purple Minnesota Vikings jersey for the New Orleans Saints' black and gold attire is going to turn heads.

Rapoport reports the possible deal could pay Peterson more than $3 million this coming season.

Not only did Peterson turn 32 last month, but he's coming off another major knee surgery and he's bad as a pass-catcher and pass-blocker. Peterson ran only 37 times for 72 yards last season after tearing his meniscus in a September game. If Peterson can help the Saints chew up clock late in games, more power to him and the Saints organization. The team's leading rusher has had fewer than 160 touches in five of the last seven seasons.

On Monday came reports that the Buffalo Bills declined to match New England's restricted-free-agent offer to under-appreciated RB Mike Gillislee, who impressively backed up LeSean McCoy in Buffalo past year, rushing for 577 yards at a 5.7-yards-per-carry clip and scoring eight times.

But, heck yeah, it makes sense for them to sign Peterson if they're getting the Hall of Famer at a discounted rate - with the added bonus of a Texas-sized chip on his shoulder after being released by the Minnesota Vikings. He has 11,747 career rushing yards with 97 touchdowns in 10 seasons - 16th on the NFL's all-time list. Despite lingering injury concerns, the Vikings took Peterson with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2007 National Football League draft.

Since becoming a free agency March 9, Peterson has visited Seattle, New England and New Orleans. His arrival in New England increases the likelihood the Patriots won't keep unrestricted free agent LeGarrette Blount, who led the team in rushing a year ago.

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

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