Running back Adrian Peterson is among the biggest names on the free-agent market, but he is reportedly content to take his time before signing.
According to ESPN's Ben Goessling, the former Minnesota Viking is in "no rush" to sign and wants to explore his options following the first wave of free agency.
The Vikes recently decided against picking up the 31-year-old veteran's option, which means he could don a new uniform for the first time in his NFL career in 2017.

Peterson is coming off a 2016 season that saw him appear in only three games due to a knee injury, and he has missed 28 games over the past three years combined, as he was suspended in 2014.
His only full season since the end of 2013 was the 2015 campaign, and it was a highly productive one, as the seven-time Pro Bowler rushed for a league-high 1,485 yards and 11 touchdowns.
Signing a running back over the age of 30 is often a risky proposition in the NFL, but since Peterson is relatively fresh with so many games missed over the past three years, he could pay significant dividends.
The last time Peterson came off a major knee injury was 2012, and that season saw him nearly break the NFL rushing record with 2,097 yards.
