The Raiders, Giants, Buccaneers.. you name it – a lot of teams have been mentioned as possible destinations for free agent running back Adrian Peterson.
Why not the Green Bay Packers?
ESPN’s Rob Demovsky:
‘ The Packers have been silent about their plans at running back, but after losing Eddie Lacy to the Seahawks in free agency, they sure could use a veteran presence in the backfield. Coach Mike McCarthy was admittedly intrigued by the idea of pairing Lacy with Ty Montgomery. Now that the idea has walked out the door, what about a Montgomery-Peterson combination? The longer Peterson is on the market, the lower his price becomes, which could bring the Packers into the mix. ‘
