Jerome Felton RB BUF 11 months ago

Felton will sign as a free agent with the Bills, Ian Rapoport of reports.

Felton only had four rushing attempts with the Vikings last season and didn't have a single carry the two seasons before that. However, he was considered perhaps the best free agent fullback on the market and Bills coordinator Greg Roman favors a heavy run attack.

The Star-Tribune expects the Vikings to lock up FB Jerome Felton before free agency opens.

This is a situation Adrian Peterson will be watching closely. Operating on a one-year "prove it" deal in 2012, Felton emerged as one of the game's best lead-blockers while helping pave the way for Peterson's remarkable 2,097-yard season. He'll have plenty of leverage in upcoming negotiations.
