Re: Adrian Peterson Traded to Cardinals

Cardinals acquire RB Adrian Peterson from Saints for conditional draft pick

I'm surprised any team wanted Adrian Peterson at this point, but I guess the Cardinals were desperate enough to pull the trigger. Chris Johnson was starting for them, after all, and Peterson can't possibly be worse.

That said, Peterson is not going to be a substantial upgrade. He's averaged three yards per carry behind a New Orleans offensive line that is superior to Arizona's. Peterson has also had the luxury of playing with Drew Brees. Opposing defenses actually had to respect Brees. They aren't doing that with Palmer, who is decrepit.

Whatever the Cardinals gave up for Peterson, it's not worth it. They are horrible and won't compete for a playoff spot anyway. Their offensive line is atrocious and won't be able to open any holes for Peterson. The Saints, meanwhile, won this trade, even if they don't get anything. Letting Peterson go is addition by subtraction, as it'll allow Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara to be on the field more often.

Grade for Cardinals - C-
Grade for Saints - B+

Dang FF, she's even sporting AP's new team colors; Is that one of your exes?

Just hope this doesn't come back and bite us in the back. But at least they traded AP to a team that we won't be playing this season.

Surprised when we picked him. Not surprised he's been traded.

Disagree. It was a bad idea - we could have signed a DT-3, LB, or an OL during that time with that money...

For what we spent, a late round pick was not worth it; get bringing in quality depth behind MI, but that was too much and too much drama...

My Fantasy Heart soars now because in my cash league, I have MI...

Re: Adrian Peterson Traded to Cardinals

And we do this before playing a team who has shut our offense down and the one player who has been the difference maker in the matchups with the vikings(they are 0-6 against Detroit without AP). If Kamara struggles against Detroit and the bye week hasn't helped, well I'm afraid the defense is gonna be forced to do a lot against a QB coming off a bad week.
