Peterson back in NFC North, signing with Lions.
Peterson is signing a one-year, $1.05 million contract that includes incentives, a league source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The move reunites Peterson with his former offensive coordinator with the sota Minnesota Vikings, Darrell Bevell, and adds to an already crowded Lions backfield that includes Kerryon Johnson, last year’s starter, and 2020 second-round pick D’AndreSwift.
“They’re giving me an opportunity to play,” Peterson, 35, told Anderson. “I know Coach Bevell from my days in Minnesota. Ultimately I feel comfortable going there and helping them to get better.”
