Adrian Peterson Traded To Cardinals

Adrian Peterson Traded To Cardinals

Defenses are looking for the run whenever Peterson is on the field.

That's overstating things a bit, obviously. Peterson was signed by the Saints in the offseason and couldn't get enough touches over running backs Mark Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara.

It was clear from the Saints' first game that Peterson was not going to fit with Payton's versatile, high-flying offense. He hasn't been subtle about his unhappiness either, being captured on national television shouting at New Orleans head coach Sean Peyton.

The New Orleans Saints have traded running back Adrian Peterson to the Arizona Cardinals for a conditional draft pick, according to a statement released by the team.

For fantasy purposes, this doesn't really change much.

Since the start of 2016, Peterson has carried the ball 64 times and gained just 2.4 yards per carry. He's on injured reserve.

Adrian Peterson has been a forgotten man in New Orleans. In Arizona, Peterson will get a chance to bolster a banged-up backfield that boasts the league's worst rushing attack.

Peterson will address the media after practice Wednesday.

"I'm so ecstatic", Peterson texted to NFL Network reporter Stacey Dales. James was useful late in his career thanks to the versatility as a pass catcher he carried over from his earliest, most prolific days in Indianapolis. Kamara had 15 carries for 83 yards and one touchdown and 20 receptions for 147 yards and one touchdown. Safety Chris Banjo posted a tweet that simply showed a crying emoji to show he was sad to see Peterson go. However, they've now acquired a new risky weapon just in time for their Week 6 matchup versus Tampa Bay.

The Saints needed a veteran backup running back since injuries are so common at the position. "But unfortunately that's the way the game played out".
