Fox Sports will debut former Atlanta Falcons cornerback Adrian Peterson on Thursday as an analyst for the network’s new NFL draft coverage.
The move comes as the Falcons and Peterson are negotiating a new contract.
Peterson is currently an analyst on Fox Sports 1, but he is set to become an analyst with Fox Sports 3.
Peterson will not only be an analyst but also will report from his home studio in Tampa, Fla.
Peterson, who was an undrafted free agent in 2012, played in five games with the Falcons last season.
In his debut, Peterson was a plus-one on the defense, recording six tackles, two interceptions and a pass deflection.
In 2015, Peterson earned All-Pro honors and led the NFL with five interceptions.
His second-round selection in 2014 earned him an invitation to the Pro Bowl.
Peterson also had an interception returned for a touchdown in 2015.
The 25-year-old has a career-high 16 interceptions.
He will begin the year as an NFL analyst.
The network also announced it is launching its own draft coverage this season, including coverage of the NFL draft, which will begin on Sunday.
