Adrian Peterson, RB – First round in 2007

Although he may be willing to play in the NFL for many more seasons to come, his opportunities may be limited since interest in signing Adrian Peterson hasn’t been apparent by any team so far this offseason.

The potential Pro Football Hall of Fame rusher was the MVP of the NFL in 2012 and made the Pro Bowl seven times in his career, but has found himself bouncing around the league and getting fewer opportunities as the years go by.

Last season, the former first-round pick of the Minnesota Vikings in 2007 only saw action in four games split between the Titans and Seahawks and will likely be in a situation where he will act as an emergency depth signing if a team deals with injuries.

Peterson is fifth all-time in rushing yards from scrimmage, gaining 14,918 yards with his seven NFL squads. He is only 351 yards behind Lions legend Barry Sanders for the fourth spot, and it’s questionable as to whether or not that will happen.
