Jerod Mayo is not one of those New Englanders who are up in arms about the Patriots' decision to visit with Adrian Peterson.
"There's harm in bringing a guy like Adrian in," Mayo told Tom Curran on CSNNE's Quick Slants Tuesday. "You know he can run the ball. He's had some injuries over the past few years, but there are other running backs on this team. He won't play on third down. You still have Dion Lewis. You still have James White. But you don't have a LeGarrette Blount, a guy for first and second down. So it doesn't hurt to bring him in. It's only a plane ticket."
But what about the child injury charges?
"Well, first of all, you went all the way up to Kraft," Mayo said. "If Bill was to bring someone in with some baggage, Kraft has already checked off. He's already approved. So now he's in the locker room. And you as a player, you as a player have to accept this guy who he is. . . . But you walk in with a clean slate when you walk in that locker room."
