Former league MVP names his price on the open market.

Adrian Peterson is on the open market and he isn't demanding a whole lot for another opportunity.

According to Yahoo's Charles Robinson the free agent running back is only seeking $4-6 million per year as a free agent. The Minnesota Vikings declined Peterson's $18 million dollar option for the 2017 season and he is commanding much less than that on the open market.

Spotrac calculates Peterson's current market value to be $4.5 million per year, which would make him the 10th highest paid running back in the league.

The Oakland Raiders, Seattle Seahawks, and New England Patriots are considered the prime landing spots for the 31-year old.

Running back Latavius Murray would cost the Raiders an estimated $6.7 million per year to retain, per the calculated market value tool at Spotrac, while the Patriots would have to pay ball carrier LeGarrette Blount around $4.3 million per year to keep him with the team.

The Seahawks released their leading rusher Christine Michael nine games into the season, and the team will look to Thomas Rawls and C.J Prosise to run the ball in 2017. Of all the team's mentioned surrounding AP, the Seahawks seem the likeliest option at the moment.

Peterson suffered a torn meniscus in his knee which limited him to just three games in 2016 and his health is a concern. However, Peterson has already managed a dominant season, following his recovery from a torn ACL. He is only one year removed from a 1,485 yard- 11 touchdown season, while starting all 16 games.

The future Hall of Famer has recorded 2,418 carries for 11,747 yards and 97 touchdowns since landing with the Vikings as a first-round pick in 2007, and is the Vikings' all-time franchise leader in every major rushing category.
