Vikings say goodbye to Adrian, will see him Week 1 vs Saints

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Vikings finally said their official goodbyes to longtime franchise pillar Adrian Peterson on Tuesday, but it won't be long until they see him again.

Peterson signed a two-year deal with the New Orleans Saints on Tuesday, a move that sets up a Week 1 reunion on Sept. 11 when the Vikings host the Saints on Monday Night Football. Peterson spent the first 10 seasons of his career with the Vikings, rushing for 11,747 yards and 97 touchdowns and serving as the offensive focal point for most of his time here.

Peterson's exit appeared to be a foregone conclusion when he played in just three games because of a knee injury in 2016 and the Vikings started to retool the offense around quarterback Sam Bradford. Peterson is 32 and missed nearly all of 2014 while being mired in an ugly child abuse case, but that did little to diminish the kind words extended toward him by the organization on Tuesday.
