Could it be?

Is there actually a chance that one of the NFL's all-time leading rushers could become a New York Giant by next season?

Well, it's a bit of a far shot. However, Giants head coach Ben McAdoo said they'd at least consider it.

The Minnesota Vikings said they would not pick the option the last year on Peterson's contract Tuesday. But before you get too excited, the Vikings may very well bring back Peterson back at a reduced salary. The 32 year-old has stated that he'd like to finish his career in Minnesota

He could also land with the whatever town they happen to playing in.

But what if? Coach McAdoo said on Wednesday:

We’ll go take a look at him, we’ll evaluate him, we’ll get a grade on anyone who’s available and we’ll make those decisions in terms of what’s best for the Giants moving forward.

Now that running back Rashad Jennings is gone, the G-Men could use some more power on the ground. Right now, they've got rookie Paul Perkins and backup Shane Vereen as their running backs. This could really help.

Peterson missed all but three games in 2016 due to injury. In ten years, Peterson has rushed for 13,692 yards and scored 97 touchdowns. He is a sure bet for the Hall of Fame one day.
