If you don’t play for the Patriots, Steelers, Cowboys or Falcons, your offseason has already begun.
Tis the season for current high-NFL players to make appearances on ESPN’s roster of morning shows. Thursday, it was future Hall-of-Famer Adrian Peterson’s turn. Amid a week that included spots by Giants safety Landon Collins and Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon, All Day made the biggest splash from a news perspective, providing a short list of potential destinations if the Vikings cut him.
Peterson, the NFL’s 16th all-time leading rusher, has spent his entire nine-year career in Minnesota but could be a salary cap casualty, moving forward. However, after playing in just three games due to torn meniscus, the soon-to-be 32-year-old recognizes he could part ways with the purple and gold.

Teryl Austin, Lions defensive coordinator: Detroit offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter might not be ready for a coaching job, but Austin is overdue for his chance. His work has been key in helping Detroit get to the playoffs in two of the last three seasons despite personnel limited on star power. He’s a good schemer and motivator, perfect to put with Bosa.
John Pagano, Chargers defensive coordinator: Pagano has done a terrific job turning around the defense as the team has stockpiled some good, young talent on that side of the ball over the past several drafts with GM Tom Telesco. While his brother Chuck is on shaky ground with the Colts, John keeps building his resume as a candidate. San Diego can’t ignore the potential of an in-house promotion.
