Peterson played just three games last season because of a torn meniscus suffered on September 18. While that price is likely still in the negotiation phase, it would be interesting to see him take that kind of contract after averaging $14 million over the last three seasons in Minnesota. The team's leading rusher has had fewer than 160 touches in five of the last seven seasons. Peterson would join running back Mark Ingram, who posted his first 1,000-yard season and a career-high 10 touchdowns a year ago. With the draft coming up, teams with a need at running back will be selecting young rookies instead of signing oft-injured veterans. He finished the season with 72 yards on 37 carries.
The left tackle, the first overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins, played only four games with the Minnesota Vikings in 2016 before he suffered a torn Achilles on November 13 to end his season. Hightower, who signed as a free agent in San Francisco this offseason, had 133 carries for 548 yards (4.1-yards per carry) and four touchdowns and 22 catches for 200 yards and one touchdown for New Orleans past year. Butler spent the early part of free agency making eyes at the Saints, but reports now claim a trade with New Orleans is unlikely to happen.
Instead, Tampa Bay will probably spend a draft pick on a running back later this week.
