Seems like the Ravens are ready to move forward with Kenneth Dixon & Terrence West for now.

I can see Oakland do it, he's just not going to be successful there. If he is, Carr will struggle. Skill sets just don't match from what they want to do.

Giants would be a good fit tho. Able to run under center for the majority of the plays, they run a solid play action. Paul Perkins is a great change of pace back.

Seahawks would have one killer backfield. I hope they don't because I have both Rawls and Prosise in my dynasty keeper league. Don't need any more carries stolen from them.

Jeremy Fowler‏ @JFowlerESPN
I'm told Bucs not expected to aggressively pursue Adrian Peterson at this point. Things can change, but still loose plans for Doug Martin

Smart team, probably looking toward the draft.

NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes reports the Giants will not be "serious suitors" for impending free agent Adrian Peterson.

Of course no one is going to publicly state that they're going to be strong suitors for Peterson, or any impending free agent. It gives that player more leverage, and tips that team's plans.

Of course, the reality is that both the Giants and the Bucs will likely wait to see how their draft shakes out as far as RB goes before they even consider Adrian.

PFT's Mike Florio reports that free agents Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles aren't generating much interest from teams at the Combine.

Not surprising. I wouldn't mind him coming back if he is a dang steal moneywise.

At this point nostalgia is the only reason that the Vikings would bring back Peterson. He doesn't fit what they want to do offensively, he's no longer effective, and he's just going to be a distraction if he's not the guy anymore.

Probably correct. Charles is a better fit.

He doesn't pass block well at all. He hasn't been healthy for some time. He's over 30 and a RB. I don't think he catches the ball all that well, though it's hard to tell they don't try much.

I won't understand this, unless it is REALLY CHEAP, which seems very unlikely.

Running back Adrian Peterson’s father named the Seahawks as one of his son’s preferred destinations, but it doesn’t look like any deal that would land him in Seattle is imminent. Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports that the Seahawks have “no immediate interest” in signing Peterson while noting that the team has shown in the past that they will reconsider possible signings if a player’s price comes down after extended time on the market.

In comments to Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press, Nelson Peterson declined to say if there have been conversations between his son’s agent and the Seahawks. He said the presence of offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell in Seattle is a plus because Peterson played for Bevell when Bevell had the same job with the Vikings.

Peterson's dad should keep his mouth shut. "HEY! MY SON REALLY WANTS TO PLAY FOR YOU!!!" That's a really good way to lose some negotiating leverage.

Word is teams that would be interested in Adrian Peterson are put off by his asking price. Asking double what teams looking to pay.

So he's probably asking for 8-10M

I wonder what he would do when the Vikings offer him only $3M?
