Running back Adrian Peterson will be a free agent heading into 2017. News headlines have been filled with various teams that could reach out to Peterson in the upcoming days.

It would appear that the Oakland Raiders are a surprise candidate to land the 31 year-old veteran running back.

The Raiders would definitely have a strong need for a running back, as they are expected to let Latavius Murray test free agency.

Peterson already said that his desire this season would be to play for an “established quarterback.” Though young, Derek Carr fits the bill just fine in this case.
