The Minnesota Vikings chose to acquire free agent running back Latavius Murray rather than re-sign future Hall of Famer Adrian Peterson.

It appears most NFL teams agree with the Vikings’ assessment that they can do better. Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report is reporting that teams believe Peterson isn’t anywhere close to the player he once was.

Freeman wrote:

Is it possible Adrian Peterson won’t find a new team?
