According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, several GMs have balked at the idea of paying Adrian Peterson $5 million on a one-year contract.
It looks like Peterson is nearing the end of his tenure with Minnesota, but that doesn’t mean he’ll be greeted with open arms once he becomes a free agent. Per La Canfora, teams have “real concerns” about Peterson’s durability and question whether he’d be willing to take on a backup role after many years of being a workhorse. When asked about Peterson’s free agents prospects, one GM told La Canfora, “it only takes one team to do something stupid.” Despite his Hall of Fame credentials, it seems like most GMs view the current version of Peterson as an injury-prone liability.
