Free agent watch: Adrian Peterson will take his time

Former Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson took to Twitter to let the world know he won’t be inking a contract with a new team anytime soon.

Minnesota left him without a obs after they decided not to pick up an $18 million option on the 32-year-old – and option that would’ve also included a $6 million roster bonus.

“Here is something straight from the horse’s mouth … finding the best fit & helping a team in a major way win a championship is my main objective! I’m in no rush,” Peterson wrote. “Let me eliminate questions or speculation as to why… I believe whole heartedly my God will land me right where I need to be to accomplish what I’ve asked from him PERIOD.”
