Report: Saints 'close' to deal with Peterson

(WVUE) -

The Saints and Adrian Peterson are nearing a contract, according to Ian Rapaport of the NFL Network.

Peterson, 32, visited the Saints two weeks ago but left without a contract. Rapaport reported that Peterson's contract would be worth $3.25 million for one year.

Nothing has been finalized as of yet. Peterson was at one time the best running back in the NFL, but would be the clear-cut number two option behind Mark Ingram, who is coming off his first career 1,000-yard season. The Saints have a need at the position after Tim Hightower signed with San Francisco.
