Peterson for three more, Roster Moves

Adrian Peterson has agreed to a three year extension through 2009.  Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

While I am certainly glad he signed, I am curious as to why.  Based on his stats he could easily get a backup role somewhere.  Why he would be happy as a backup is either a sense of loyalty or maybe he has some inside info on TJ finding a new home.

In other roster news, the Bears signed former Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Alex Bannister and released cornerback Chris Thompson and wide receiver Mark Philmore.
