New England Patriots Rumor: Adrain Peterson Would Take Pay-cut To Be In New England

According to Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald, free agent running-back Adrian Peterson would take a New England Patriots friendly deal to sign with the team so he could have a chance to win a Super Bowl. The 31-year-old has made close to $100 million for his career and at this point he clearly is looking for a chance to finally win.

If he were to sign with the Patriots, he would be taking a significant pay cut as the team rarely pays their backs more than $2 million per year and Peterson made over $12 million last season.

In his 10-year career he has rushed for over 1,000 yards seven times. There are still some lingering effects with his past off the field issues, so it is worth wondering if the Patriots would even be willing to sign him. But some are now speculating that there is mutual interest between the two parties and with LeGarrette Blount poised to enter free agency the Patriots are in need of signing a top back.
