In a trade that shocked the National Football League world on Tuesday, the New Orleans Saints shipped running back Adrian Peterson out west to the Arizona Cardinals.
"He's going to help us win games, hopefully". We'll spend time just up here in the office just talking about our system, different things, his role. "He's one of the guys that I grew up watching just because he's Midwest, he played for the Vikings, so it's cool to have him on the team, as well". "And I'm happy that that opportunity's come up and we were able to make a trade", Payton said. And it was an opportunity, really, where he was gonna obviously get somewhere and be featured more.
Over the first four games of the year, Peterson has made just a single start, but has more importantly failed to total double-digit carries in any contest. His longest run was 11 yards.

In addition, actresses Mira Sorvino and Rosanna Arquette are also among those who say they were sexually harassed by the producer. The Italian film actress and director has not spoken out until now, saying she feared it would ruin her career to do so.
Peterson was welcomed with open arms by wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, a good friend whom the running back described as "like family". So while he wished Peterson the best, he no doubt must have felt some pride as well that he never relinquished his leading-man role. "He'll get to go out there and prove to everybody what he wants to prove to them, that he still can do this and that he still has a lot of juice in the tank".
"This is not my first rodeo", Peterson said. "So no matter who is here or wherever I'm at, I'm always gonna compete, I'm gonna fight and put my best foot forward. Whoever it is, wherever I'm at, I'm always going to compete". He signed with the Saints this offseason as the next chapter in his career as a 32-year-old.
Peterson believes that you'll see him find more success than he had in New Orleans in his new number. And the addition of Peterson, acquired from New Orleans for a conditional 2018 draft pick, could be exactly the boost the team needs.
