Adrian Peterson leaves Saints visit without contract

Adrian Peterson left New Orleans without a contract.

The running back met with the Saints this week and left Tuesday night without a deal, a source informed of the situation told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

Rapoport added that the visit went well and the sides will continue to talk.

The 32-year-old Peterson seems like an ill fit in the Saints' pass-happy offense. Yet the sides have a mutual interest in pairing. New Orleans is looking for a backup power runner behind Mark Ingram. Peterson is seeking to continue his career chasing a Super Bowl ring.

Taking a role in a backfield that already boasts Ingram would be a signal that no team was willing to hand Peterson a primary role coming off an injury-ravaged 2016 season.
