If we could get him on the cheap, I think he would be worth the risk.
And I don't want him for the Giants, not even at veteran minimum.
...lots of baggage and past his prime. Not surprised.
I'd rather get Jamaal Charles for vet minimum, plus incentives if he plays a full 16 game season.
Charles should be interested in joining NY with only Paul Perkins as his competition for the starting RB job. RB core of Charles\Perkins and Shane Vereen on 3rd downs would be a great trio.
He is not remotely as good as he was in his prime but he may still want to break the bank.
We need a cohesive locker-room where everyone respects our young head-coach. PASS.
Child beater has no place in NYG.
Better to develop a young running back then overpay an older one. The guy is only going to go down hill. Time passes for everyone.
He probably just wants more money than he's worth at this point. I think he ends up on the Raiders.
I doubt the NYG would want the PR circus that would certainly come with AP.
more and more teams don't want the baggage and his injuries are adding up.
Starks from GreenBay. He knows the offense and could be good with Perkins and Vereen.
lets get a late round stud a RB. Yeah right.

Because that (Ahmad) never happens (Bradshaw)
He's old for an NFL RB, has a lot of mileage, and has been through a number of injuries.
He's a POS
And he's washed up
He doesn't have a injury of significant injury, and has more TD's than both Peterson and Charles combined over the last two years. He shouldn't cost us as much either.

He's just about finished.
As for the 'Well, the child abuse charges are a huge impediment' crowd...agreed, but if he was 2012 AP, lots of teams would overlook that & make a run after him.
..a guy who's used to filling a team roll.
AP has been in an FOR AP OFFENSE... add in the Personal Stuff and Just Say NO!
old, often injured, previous personal issues.
but do agree he would be worth it at a certain price. I would say his price tag is the #1 reason why he is still on the market, maybe the other stuff too, but I'm guessing he's shooting a little too high.
but I have come around a little with the addition of Ellison. If he comes CHEAP, I would consider it. All we heard last year was that the opposing defenses were sitting back in zone and daring the Giants to run. Do you think they still do that with Adrian Peterson back there? If so, I think he can still be somewhat effective against boxes that are not stacked, even with this line. I would consider it.
with a domestic violence history are usually not popular with GMs, even one with Adrian Peterson's storied career
