Former Bears Special Teamer Peterson Inks with a UFL Team

The Chic Tribune reports that former Bears special teams ace Adrian Peterson has inked a deal with the Virginia Destroyers of the United Football League.

Adrian Peterson, who for eight seasons was one of the better special teams players for the Chicago Bears, has signed a contract with the Virginia Destroyers of the United Football League, according to a source. Peterson’s contract with the Bears expired after the 2009 season and he sat out last season, although he did get a small handful of workouts and had a brief stay in training camp with the Seattle Seahawks. Now, the running back is in the fold with a chance to showcase himself for the NFL again. The Destroyers selected Peterson in the third round of the UFL draft last month, 14th overall.
