Of course, signing Peterson makes little sense for the Patriots.
First, there are all the off-field issues to deal with. It won’t happen as long as Bob Kraft owns the team. In fact, forget all the off-field problems. The Kraft family would never seriously consider him after his suspension for much of the 2014 season, being charged with child abuse.
Even if the front office, ownership and the rest of the organization can get past this, Adrian Peterson is not a fit for the New England Patriots on the field.
For the offense to function at peak efficiency, the Patriots need their running back to be a threat rushing and receiving. This is why they have been looking for options beyond LeGarrette Blount and have refused to overpay him. To the Patriots, he is essentially a one-dimensional running back.
