After much speculation on a landing spot, former Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has decided on the New Orleans Saints.
The two-year deal is worth a total of $7 million, Peterson told ESPN’s Josina Anderson.
Peterson, who had some visits with a few teams in recent weeks, spilled the details as well, per PFT:
‘Peterson also gave the full details of the contract as well. The deal is a one-year contract to start with an option for a second year for New Orleans. Peterson will earn $3.5 million in fully guaranteed money this season with a $2.5 million signing bonus and $1 million in guaranteed base salary.
His 2018 option would carry $3.5 million in non-guaranteed money with $2.4 million in roster bonuses. The $3.5 million comes from $1.05 million in base salary, $1.65 million in per game roster bonuses, a $750,000 roster bonus that triggers on the third day of the league year and a $50,000 workout bonus.’
