Saints trade Adrian Peterson to Cardinals

Saints trade Adrian Peterson to Cardinals”

But, after only four games, Peterson's time in New Orleans is over as he reportedly has been traded to the Arizona Cardinals for a conditional pick. Peterson was expected by many to be a new, key cog within New Orleans' offense, but it did not exactly work out that way.

During the early portion of the season, it quickly became clear Peterson was the third option in the Saints' backfield behind Mark Ingram and rookie third-round pick Alvin Kamara. The 32-year-old Peterson played his first 10 National Football League seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, where he was a seven-time Pro Bowler and four-time First-team All-Pro selection.

Although the Saints signed Peterson to a two-year, $7 million deal in April, the addition of the future Hall of Famer immediately seemed like a luxury with Ingram in the prime of his career. "One thing I said to him was, 'Hey, let's run this inside zone.' And we came out and we ran that", Peterson said, per ESPN.com. I also did a lot of homework on the defense as well.

Arizona has failed to rush for 100 yards in any game this season, losing star running back David Johnson to a wrist injury in the season openers against the Detroit Lions. This pretty much kills the fantasy value of Chris Johnson, and it likely doesn't help Andre Ellington's value too much either.
