Peterson trade?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; My first thought was who would want him (nobody else seemed to want him in the off season) but then I just saw Minnesota's starting RB went down...maybe we can get a case of Juicy Fruit or some thing. AP ...

AP was a beast in the day because he had great strength and a great burst of speed. He now has great strength but no burst, and apparently no vision. Ingram and Kamara seem to be able to weave their way though what our blockers give them, AP goes north - south worst result 2 yards, best result 4.
Meh, if we keep him, so what, he's just getting back-up RB money anyway.

There's 0% chance he's still on the team after our bye week.

Re: Peterson trade?

I don't think he has any trade value left.

Re: Peterson trade?

Ingram will get hurt and miss a couple of games as he always does. This is why AP was brought in. AP has a fragile IR history so he has to be saved as much as possible.

Thus the reason I never liked the signing.

Re: Peterson trade?

Looked splashy when we signed him, but no one could have predicted Kamara being available in the draft, or that AK would have an immediate impact. Now Peterson is just not needed

Seattle's back went down also. Hopefully our phone is ringing

Re: Peterson trade?

We will need him when Ingram goes down with his yearly case of turf toe.

Re: Peterson trade?

There are too many better RB's floating around. I see no trade value other than maybe SF. Carlos is beat up and odds are won't make it the full stretch. They have Brieda but AP would be an upgrade. What would we get though? A 7th round or some D grade lineman...meh, might as well keep him as bad insurance policy you hope you never have to use.

Re: Peterson trade?

I think Peterson is still good. I don't think he fits in our offense.

Re: Peterson trade?

We have three good RB's. If one goes down then we only have two.

AP might have trade value......we already traded one player who didn't fit the system and we have drafted better under Ireland. We signed him late in the draft process and his input wasn't that great the first year. His second year with us showed that he has an eye for defense and knows how to draft.

Personally, I want to keep AP on the team playing Tim Hightower's old role which I think was the original plan was for him before the schedule had us playing Minny our first game.

Why are you so insistent that Ingram is going to get injured? I'd rather expect and hope that none of our players get injured. It seems as though you are hoping to get the chance to say, "I told you so."
