Re: Peterson trade?

Don't forget... it's a long season. We have 2 basic options...

1. Keep him just in case of season injuries at position.
2. Wait to trade deadline when a team might be willing to pay more.

Personally, I don't want to make the playoffs and not have a 1st string RB at the position like we did for one season.

Re: Peterson trade?

Let's face it AP is a strong 3rd string.
Ingram is starter and 3rd down back. AP can be mixed in.
Kamara is 2nd string. He's faster and complements Ingram.

If Ingram gets injured, and he does when he's taking the lions share of duties, AP will be a Godsend.

AP will have to get used to playing in a platoon system.
He came to the Saints to get paid and for an opportunity for a Championship.

Highly unlikely. I don't see a team in the league that would be willing to do a trade ... especially considering he hasn't looked all that good.

We'll just need to resign him when Mark takes his midseason break anyway.

He's no longer any good. I'll take an 8th rounder right now.

Could trade off Peterson and bring back Tim Hightower as the 3rd string back.

He won't be happy in this role but we need the backup

Re: Peterson trade?

How about a Shady/AP tandem in Buffalo? Seems real sexy on paper.
