Adrian Peterson says he and Mark Ingram arenít competing for touches,*yet

Peterson readily admits that he accepted a spot on the team with the express understanding that heíll have a different role than heís had in the past. Still, itís easy to read his words as leaving the door open for something more than a defined niche in the New Orleans offense.

ďItís different,Ē Peterson said. ďIíve been that guy for 10 years. I came into this situation with open arms. Everything was laid out to me as well and I made a decision to be a part of it. So Iím looking forward to seeing how things work out.Ē

Is he trying to get Ingram traded?

He came here to be #2 even if he could be #1. It's the recovery time. No way he is going to be 1 unless Ingram goes down. Going off of players like Ricky Williams at 32 he can still get it done and some. He needs more time to heal though. If healthy he is going to make us proud. We upgraded Hightower. That is all that happened.

I really think he's going to be special, but I don't know that he'll be #1. Besides, we've all seen what Ingram does when he's pushed. I think it's gonna be fun to watch. And I think AP will have a couple 100 yrd games.

Y'all read the article and not just the damned headline. That ", yet" was nothing that Peterson said or even implied. I watched the entire interview and that wasn't not there at all. It is the implication manufactured by the media hacks at PFT.

If AP stays healthy; it's going to be fun to watch! Two #1 backs sharing the touches... No drop off in play with the substitutions, threat of a decent run game 100% of the time!

long story short, AP did NOT say he and Mark Ingram aren’t competing for touches,*yet
What he said was what diplomatic and what you would expect of a good teammate
