Adrian Peterson, Arizona Cardinals
The Arizona Cardinals recently released Adrian Peterson, who had a fall from grace. Once the most-feared back in the NFL, Peterson found himself looking for a home in 2017 after the Minnesota Vikings moved on from him.

He then was dealt to the Cards, who had lost David Johnson to injury. Peterson put together a couple huge games — including a 134 yard and 159-yard outing for Arizona. It wasn’t enough to keep him on this season, and him flaming out to end the year didn’t help.
This may be a tough sell in Cleveland, but he did show flashes in 2017.
Frank Gore, Indianapolis Colts
Frank Gore has been the model of consistency and is now the No. 5 all-time rushing leader in the NFL with 14,026 yards. He’s turning 35-years old before the season begins, but still put up 961 yards behind a porous offensive line in Indianapolis.
He’s also just one season removed from topping the 1,000-yard plateau for that same club. On top of that, he’s proven to be a viable option catching the ball out of the backfield with 101 receptions since joining the Colts in 2015.
Gore wouldn’t be the first choice given his age, but the bruising back hasn’t missed a game since 2010 and keeps on going. May be fun to see what he could do with a better o-line.
