Former Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is currently working out with Tampa Bay star QB Jameis Winston in Houston. Peterson remains unsigned at the present, however he recently expressed interest in playing with the Buccaneers earlier in the offseason. This comes amid uncertainty surrounding Doug Martin, who will be serving a 3-game suspension to start the season because he violated the league's substance abuse policy.
Bucs head coach Dirk Koetter was enthusiastic in regards to Winston's partnership with Peterson:
"I've seen Adrian Peterson many times playing and that guy is one of the best running backs to ever play. I'm anxious to talk to Jameis and ask him how his workouts went. That caught me off guard. I didn't know that. I'll be honest with you, first thing I thought when I saw that was Jamies is just an amazing guy. The guy is everywhere.'' - Dirk Koetter via Tampa Bay Times Rick Stroud
