Adrian Peterson to visit the Patriots on Monday

According to Adam Schefter, he's meeting with the New England Patriots.

Peterson previously visited the Seattle Seahawks.

New England will host the oft-injured star running back for a free agent visit Monday in Foxborough, Mass., ESPN.com reported, citing sources.

Peterson, 32, played just three games last season because of a torn meniscus suffered on September 18.




Just when you thought the Patriots offseason moves were finally over, now Adrian Peterson is now set to meet with the defending Super Bowl champions.

The three-time rushing champ could be an intriguing option if LeGarrette Blount, who had a league-leading 18 rushing touchdowns last season, opts to leave in free agency. Add in a deep running back class in the draft, and Peterson's challenges in pass protection, and the odds seemed to be even longer of the sides coming together.

As far as teams that Peterson might want to play for, New England seems like the flawless fit. However, his yards per carry average was below 4.0.

The Patriots haven't been very aggressive in the running back market, only signing career backup and special teamer Rex Burkhead to a one-year deal, although he will earn over $3 million if he makes the team. But landing Peterson would definitely be the biggest head-turner of them all.
