Veteran NFL running back Adriane Peterson visited with the Saints on Tuesday, and left the meeting without a contract.

The two sides will continue talks about a potential deal, but this will likely be on hold until after the draft.  The 32 year old running back needs the Saints more than the Saints need him, so this is clearly a case where the black and gold could re-visit the AP possibility after the draft at the end of this month. 

If New Orleans misses out on a rookie running back they might covet I could see the Saints going back to Peterson with a potential deal.  The Saints were smart in seeing where he stands mentally and physically.  Peterson has played in 20 games over the last three seasons due to injury.
