Saints, 32-year-old Adrian Peterson agree on 2-year contract

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The New Orleans Saints and free-agent running back Adrian Peterson have agreed on a two-year contract.

The deal means Peterson, a 10-year veteran who has posted seven 1,000-yard seasons with Minnesota and once eclipsed 2,000 yards, could become a backup running back on an offense that tends to pass more than run.

Still, Saints coach Sean Payton said Tuesday that he envisions a productive role for Peterson, who is coming back from a 2016 meniscal tear that required season-ending knee surgery after only three games.
