Seahawks sign Eddie Lacy, so what does that mean for Adrian Peterson?


Eddie Lacy was signed by Seattle, James Starks was cut and converted wide receiver Ty Montgomery will go into first offseason as a full-time running back.

Spielman also added the following. Logic says they'll address their defense early in the draft and find value in a running back later, just like they did with Murray four years ago.

Murray signed with the Minnesota Vikings late Wednesday night, with the team announcing the news.

"I've worked with Coach Sparano, and I trust in his process and getting the guys ready", Murray said.

Elections in the Netherlands: Explainer
Pundits predicted that Rutte's party would win 24 to Wilders 22 seats, both well below the 76 needed to form a majority. A record 28 parties are competing for the 150 seats in the lower house of Dutch parliament, known as the Tweede Kamer .

U.S. flight diverted over $12 blanket dispute
Footage of the incident showed the man, wearing a hoodie and a baseball cap as he was escorted from the plane by two officers. Croyle said the airline offers complimentary blankets in all cabins on global flights and on certain red-eye flights.

The 31-year-old running back would have been due $18 million in salary against the cap in 2017 had he stayed in Minnesota. He led the National Football League in rushing for three seasons, was a 7-time Pro Bowl and All-Pro player, and even became the Most Valuable Player of the 2012 National Football League season.

Although Adrian Peterson is still a free agent, he will likely find a new home with another team in the NFL. I'm not here to be #28, there's no one like him.

In theory, sure. The Lions are believed to be in the market for another running back, and the bruising Peterson would be a nice complement to Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick.

Drafted in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL Draft out of Central Florida, Murray was named to the 2015 Pro Bowl. But his time with the Vikings will never be forgotten by the fans, or the organization, as Spielman said. The Vikings have not closed the door on re-signing Peterson, but reaching a deal with Murray would end his tenure with them. Over 16 games, Minnesota started eight different combinations of linemen, with 12 different players seeing action on the line throughout the year.
