Former NFL MVP Adrian Peterson told ESPN today that he’s planning to sign with the New Orleans Saints. The reported two-year deal comes with a guaranteed $3.5 million the first year (plus an additional $8.25 million in incentives) and a non-guaranteed $3.5 million plus incentives the second year. The running back told ESPN”s Josina Anderson that he’s “excited” to play for the Saints. “I’m really looking forward to this opportunity. Most importantly, I chose this team because it just felt right within my spirit.” Prior to this announcement, Peterson had spent his entire 10-year career with the Minnesota Vikings, who released him in March.
