One by one, man for man, the testimonials were delivered in the New Orleans Saints locker room Thursday.

"He's a beast," Kenny Vaccaro said.

"A stud," Drew Brees said.

Left tackle Terron Armstead went a step further: "I've honestly never seen somebody like him."

Offseason hype is a rite of spring in the NFL. In camps across the NFL, fans and media are eating the cheese daily, as Saints head coach Sean Payton likes to say.

The praise, however, is typically reserved for a precocious rookie or breakout prospect entering his sophomore season.

Rarely is it devoted to a 32-year-old veteran coming off a second knee operation in three years.



Then again, Adrian Peterson isn't your typical newcomer or average player.

The former Minnesota Vikings superstar hasn't gained a yard or broken a single tackle for the Saints yet, but he has opened the eyes of his peers and dropped their jaws almost daily during the team's offseason practices.


"I'm amazed," Armstead said. "This dude is extremely blessed. He's got so much left. You'll see it."

Damn I cant wait. Just imagine him running without basically 11 in the box. If he stays healthy I think he alone will make up more than the loss of Cooks. If they stack the box then Brees will have a field day.

Re: Adrian Peterson opens eyes, drops jaws of his new Saints teammates

We try and be realistic about a player that is defying the March of time . Sometime people defy the odds.It could happen. He has done it already.75% of his prime production is 1500 yds. Imagine him getting 1300 and Ingram getting 1000 . I can't wait to see him in the black and gold!!!!!

I've never heard of the team talking so much about a player in OTAs before. And they seem to add Mark's name in at the end of what they're saying. Like they don't want to disrespect him or something. I wonder how he'll handle it if Peterson gets more carries. I hope he keeps a good attitude. I'm sure he will...I hope.
