NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana -

Adrian Peterson has found a new home before the start of the Thursday's 2017 NFL Draft.

According to, the New Orleans Saints and Peterson agreed to a two-year deal Tuesday that will pay the veteran running back $7 million.

The deal is guaranteed for 2017, the website added.

The seven-time pro bowler will earn less than incumbent New Orleans starter Mark Ingram, who is coming off the most productive season of his career. Ingram has improved significantly in the passing game over the past two years, which would theoretically position Peterson to concentrate on early-down runs and high-leverage situations such as third-and-short and goal-line carries.

Peterson attended the University of Oklahoma, where he played on coach Bob Stoops' team from 2004 to 2006. 

As luck would have it, the Saints visit the Minnesota Vikings in Week 1 for a Monday night showdown with Peterson's former team.
