Adrian Peterson has been a dominant force in the NFL for the better part of a decade, and now he wants to be a Seahawk.

According to NFL Network's Stacey Dales, the free agent running back views the Oakland Raiders and the Seattle Seahawks as desirable landing spots for him in 2017.

While Peterson reportedly hasn't drawn much interest from teams, he is also open to joining the New England Patriots at a discount if they want him back.

The Minnesota Vikings declined Peterson's contract option last week after 10 seasons with the team. They would conceivably like to have Peterson back, but at nowhere near the $18-million option he had on the books for this upcoming season.

The 31-year old suffered a torn meniscus in his knee which limited him to just three games in 2016. His health is a concern, but Peterson has already managed a career year following his recovery from a torn ACL. His ability to bounce back will also be a factor when teams approach him, and 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.
