    NFL Adrian Peterson traded to Cardinals

    http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/2...nal-draft-pick

    He was forgotten in New Orleans, maybe new scenery will help.

    That's where Emmitt went to die too.

    Good luck, AD.

    I'm not sure if he has much left or not, but he'll get more touches than spending all game on the sideline with the Saints.

    I thought everyone was saying the Giants were the ones that really needed someone like AD. I'm surprised he was traded and didn't go there.

    Great...going to a team that can't run block for shit and will get behind most games opening up playing time for Ellington.

    Why would anyone want to take his contract?

    I don't think his NO contract is very large at all.

    Can’t be any worse than sitting the bench in NO.

    When you're 0-5 the last thing you want is an aging RB at the cost of any draft pick.

    he looks good in red, though.

    when i was a kid we got everything from sears, especially at christmas. back then, they didn't have any college stuff. so one christmas, i chose a st louis cardinals football jacket because it was red and white.

    they bought it so big, i could squeeze my shoulder pads underneath and wear it to my pee wee games.

    wish i still had my vikings helmet, also from sears...

    I looked up the career rushing leaders and then looked at how many had 1,000 yard seasons at age 32 or after. There were hardly any (Payton, Smith, Harris, and Riggins, maybe one more). And I think most of those came at exactly age 32.

    I hope Peterson does well, but judging by history (and the start to this year), he's done.

    When I was in 4th grade I entered the Punt, Pass, and Kick competition in Sapulpa. First place got a Cardinals helmet. It was the most beautiful thing i had ever seen. Just came in 2nd though...

    Adrian could have picked a team with a good O Line but Money was the most important thing.

    I was thinking about that the other day: AD is at the edge of retirement, even though he is probably in as good to better shape physically than a lot of younger backs, with injuries and age, he probably doesn't have a lot of time left in the league...so, if you're AD, do you optimize the money you can make in the time you have left? Or do you try to go to a better team for less money and hope you get paid that way?

    I don't think he's winning any super bowls so the $$$ should probably be paramount.

    Only so many money making years for an athlete. But his contract really isn’t that big, he took what was available, without many options.

    He's already made a shit ton of $. He could retire easily. I think he wants to play, and win.

    Sure could have fooled me. If he wanted to play and win why'd he go to a shit team that throws on every down and whose coach still thinks it's 2006.

    I'm thinking he probably spends a shit ton. Hopefully he has invested and manages wisely but I'm not holding my breaf.

    Good luck behind that offensive line.. He might be worth an add in fantasy though.

    You could be right, but the wear and tear on him up until 32 (knee injury aside) is pretty light. Hell, it's like he retired when he was 30.

    Great QB that should have made it harder for the D to stack the box. And Money.

    They were no way close in being the shape AD is in...I put AD at 27 body wise I think he has more to offer just needs reps and time to learn the offense..

    I love AD, but he can't block and is not a good pass catcher. He need to be versatile in Payton offense. I believe we brought him in to be a 3rd down back or if Ingram or Alvin Kamara got hurt. I'm pretty sure after he saw how Kamara played last game he knew he won't be getting much action. Payton loves do it all back, Bush and Sproles were his toys.

    Kamara has stepped up big and would argue he is just like Mixon if not better.

    Again I am sad, because I wanted AD to have some good games stiff arming people and then retire as a Saint.

    Wrong on the pass catcher. AD was not a good fit because NO never was going to commit to him. AD normally had the highest catch percent on Vikes but their system of crappy coaches/OCs/ABs rarely used him to catch. But when he was thrown to he normally had the best catch percent on team. Its an old wives tale that he can’t catch.

    NO was never going to commit to him. He knew that before he even came here. You think Ingram is going to sit at #2 or #3 after just having a 1000 yard season?

    Now, I agree on the pass catching. The Saints forum and all the media says he's not a good pas catcher. I sorta was leaning that way because I don't remember him doing it much with Vikings but again it's not like I watched ever Vikings game.

    My memory was fuzzy but I thought he caught balls at OU pretty regularly but never went to look up the stats.

    But, whatever. He's gone now. I was happy he was a Saint with me being a OU fan but at the same I wasn't sure why we needed especially after getting Kamara.

    Contrast with A.D.'s 748 career rushing attempts at OU. I can't believe he wasn't more involved with the passing game. Not saying he had to be Reggie Bush or anything, but 24 measly receptions?
