If you’re a Patriots fan and you were hoping they signed Adrian Peterson then you will be disappointed.

Reports are coming out that Adrian Peterson has left New England without a deal in place to return for the 2017 season.

There is no one quite like Bill Belichick when it comes to zigging when everybody else zags. So who can be surprised that he’s taking a chance here when the rest of the market so far has cooled on Peterson following a nightmarish 2016 campaign?

Peterson is 32, and at this point, it’s fair to wonder if he would take a potential discounted offer to have an opportunity at a Super Bowl before the gas tank reads “E.”

Peterson will now most likely wait until the NFL draft is over to find his next home.
