The Vikings released him because they didn't want to pick up his $18 million one year extension and $6 million roster bonus.

Not true. The dollar amount Peterson wanted just didn't line up with what the Vikes were willing to pay. So, both sides moved on.

They most likely would've been happy to give him the deal he got from the Saints.

Re: Peterson trade?

There's another side to all this, maybe Peterson doesn't want to go anywhere? The only thing I heard from Peterson is week 1 being a little upset about not getting the ball more, which is understandable against his old team. I am not going to assume Peterson is currently satisfied, but maybe he likes his chances at getting a ring and is willing to roll with it? The media are really the only one's making a big deal right now. I am sure all AP has to do is say the word and he would be released or traded.

Re: Peterson trade?

I think Darius Victor could fill that role just fine. Trsde him to Minnessota for the best defensive player theyll part with.

Re: Peterson trade?

If Peterson wants to be traded and another team is willing, then it's a no-brainer. All parties had to know going in, he was not a fit for what the Saints do on offense. As a Saints fan, I like having Peterson as an insurance policy against Ingram getting hurt. The guy can still be productive given the opportunity.

Re: Peterson trade?

Peterson would have to become a monumental distraction in the locker room in order to be dealt. Saints FO would gain nothing by trading him.

It's still a long, challenging season (see remaining schedule) & you'll need fresh backs down the stretch. Adrian goes no where.

Re: Peterson trade?

He's insurance. The wrong coverage plan but many teams don't even have that. He's not going anywhere. Whatever we could get for him we could find on the street for free.

Re: Peterson trade?

Keep him. He's on a one year deal. His real value to us (and I said this before) is when Ingram eventually goes down for 2+ games like he does every season.
