    It's now time to grab Adrian Peterson

    Vikings just signed Latavius, Lacy is a Seahawk and I read that the Packers might be interested in Charles. I think it's pretty much us or the Raiders for AP 's services. At this point with the RB domino's falling AP may take a very friendly incentive based contract. I would take him in the range of 2 years 7-9 million (a little less then Marshall). To the people who say he doesn't fit, I think his veteran presence can only be good for the offense, plus Mcadoo needs to make a few adjustments to his predictable offense and we should run out of the I form more anyway. No he won't be a 3 down back for us, but him, Perkins and a little Vereen would be a very solid RB depth chart going into the season. Plus he'd be the best mentor you can ask for when it comes to Perkins development. I think the mixture of veterans (Eli Marshall AP Vereen) and young guys (Beckham Shepard Perkins), there's no reason why this offense can't improve significantly. Not to mention these guys are all hungry to win now. Go get him Reese!!

    He could be good here but w ll know his best alignment is in the eye 7-9 yards behind center with a fullback. Yes we've got his ex-fullback Ellison but the OC would have to change his formations for AP to be comfortable and we know how set in his ways he is so I doubt they'd sign AP even if he' makes reasonable salary demands.

    If we do sign a RB before the draft they'd probably look at LeGarette Blount if he's reasonable

    Weird how this player is somehow excluded from this board's usual kneejerk retch at the thought of a player with "past issues" being signed to the team.

    I doubt the Giants have any interest in AP whatsoever.

    I agree, but I wish they did.

    Im still thinking he winds up in New England. They are pushing all their chips in the middle for another ring for Tom.

    7-LB Ben Boulware

    Which Offensive line would you want to run behind Raiders or G men ? He will be a Raider. Plus, they have the cap space.

    They have never spent like they are right now, nor traded picks like they are right now. They are going for a championship like no other year. Very un-Patriot like. Normally they let their FAs get huge money elsewhere and stock pile draft picks.
