Patriots Rumors: Malcolm Butler is unlikely to be traded

Apr 25, 2017, 12:51

A source close to the former All-Pro running back told Yahoo Sports that the New Orleans Saints have advanced a pair of contract options to Peterson.

Despite months of trade rumors, the 27-year-old cornerback is more likely to be in New England than not at the start of the 2017 season, according to the latest report. The Advocate indicates negotiations are on-going. In fact, Peterson's best shot at a Super Bowl to date was ended by Brees and the Saints in the NFC Championship over seven years ago.

Contract negotiations between retired Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch and the Oakland Raiders appear to be at a standstill, but the New Orleans Saints may have just helped tip the scales in Oakland's favor. They went younger, signing Raiders free agent Latavius Murray.

I doubt Peterson's arrival will cause much friction in the running back room. His arrival in New England increases the likelihood the Patriots won't keep unrestricted free agent LeGarrette Blount, who led the team in rushing previous year.

Theresa May seeks early election to take United Kingdom through Brexit
At present, May's governing Conservatives have a small majority, with 330 seats in the 650-seat House of Commons . Ms May took office last July after David Cameron, her predecessor, resigned amidst the Brexit referendum result.

In between Peterson was outstanding in 2015, rushing for a league-leading 1,485 yards.

Peterson has totaled 2,418 carries, 11,747 yards and a 4.9 yards per carry average in his 10 seasons with Minnesota.

Hey, everybody! Did you know that the Minnesota Vikings are set to host the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football in Week 1 this upcoming season? That would be a huge cut from the $12 million he made last season with the Vikings.

The Saints missed the playoffs the last three years. Mark Ingram, the incumbent back, still is expected to be the workhorse - and his $3.6 million salary for next season may explain why Peterson's number is slightly lower.
