It looks like the Saints have made the first splash free agent signing this off-season. Peterson will get $7 million over two years with $3.5 million being guaranteed.
On paper, this looks like a bargain deal for one of the best running backs in the last decade. If Peterson can give them anything close to what is expected from Peterson at any given season, this is an upgrade for the Saints at the running back position.
This deal makes me wonder what the market was like for the 32-year-old running back. Assuming this was the best deal he was offered, what did teams like the Vikings and patriots offer him?

To close the ultimate thrill ride know as Wrestlemania 33, Romains went against the Undertaker in a no holds barred match. Romain Reigns ultimately wins the match and proceeds to exit the ring. The Undertaker is lying in the middle of the ring
The Undertaker is lying in the middle of the ring before he gets up to a roaring crowd. It looked like The Undertaker was about leave the ring to his theme music to close out WrestleMania 33. The Deadman begins to take off his gloves, coat, hat and left it in the center of the ring. The undertaker leaves the ring kisses his wife Michelle McCool and then begins to walk the ramp to exit the stage.
No words were said but, this seemed to be the final match of The Undertaker’s WWE career. I believe it was long over due, but like everyone else, I didn’t expect it to come at Wrestlemania 33. I think we all were spoiled with the idea that the Undertaker was just always there. I started watching wrestling in the early 90’s and the Undertaker was just always there and remained just as mystical than as he is now. This was the proper stage for a heartfelt farewell to one of the icons of my generation.
Thank You, Undertaker
Twitter and the MLB release the new Twitter Emojis for each MLB team on 2017 opening day.
Some of them I really like, some of them I find myself scratching my head about.
I like the Braves #ChopOn, The Orioles #Birdland, and of course #GoPhils.
I really hate The Mets #LGM and The Diamondbacks #ourseason. Either way, the MLB become the 3rd of the 4 major sports to get Twitter Emojis for all team. Only the NHL does not have Twitter Emojis.
Young stud for the Phoenix Suns Devin Booker dropped 70 in a losing effort against the Boston Celtics. Calling this a losing effort is an understatement, the Suns were never in this game and the Celtics dominated the scoreboard pretty much the whole game.
Booker went 21-40 from the field, 4-11 from 3, and 24-26 from the free throw line to get his 70 points.
