Pro Football Rumors: 2018 NFL Season
Adrian Peterson: Peterson interested in Texans, Rams, Panthers & Packers as landing spots?
- In an interview with NFL Live today, Adrian Peterson says that he is interested in possibly joining Houston, Los Angeles, Carolina or Green Bay. It comes as a shock that Peterson is not mentioning Tampa Bay as earlier this week Peterson took a photo with Jameis Winston and coach Dirk Koetter in Florida. Adrian Peterson, 33, has not received much interest in free agency which worries if he will be signed anytime before training camp. (Source: NFL Live – May 28th, 2018)
New Orleans Saints: Saints interested in re-signing Adrian Peterson?
- Earlier this week it was reported that Adrian Peterson was interested in re-signing with the New Orleans but it seems that the Saints are not looking into a veteran back. Head Coach Sean Payton said that the team is not ready to bring in a veteran back even with the suspension of Mark Ingram for the first four games of the season but would consider bringing in a veteran if needed. Unless the Saints have cold feet on bringing in a veteran back, Alvin Kamara will get the bulk of the carries while Jonathan Williams will get backup reps. But don’t count out third-year back Daniel Lasco. (Source: Sean Payton – May 12th, 2018)
Carolina Panthers: Garrett Gilbert the favorite to backup Cam Newton in 2018?
- Speaking to the media on Sunday, Panthers head coach Ron Rivera mentioned that Garrett Gilbert is the current favorite to backup Cam Newton this coming season. For the past six seasons, the Panthers had Derek Anderson as Newton’s backup but he still remains on the market and with this just breaking in it seems like he will not be back in Carolina in 2018. Carolina also has journeyman quarterback Taylor Heinicke but he is likely in a battle with rookie quarterback Kyle Allen for #3 if anything. (Source: Joe Person – May 12th, 2018)
