Why the Adrian Peterson trade makes sense for Arizona Cardinals and New Orleans Saints
12 October, 2017, 03:51
One of the off-season's biggest acquisitions went absolutely nowhere as it became apparent after the New Orleans Saints' first game of the year that Peterson wasn't going to be a fit for its pass-happy offense. He signed with the Saints this offseason as the next chapter in his career as a 32-year-old.
That is 23 Pro Bowls between three players.
"We are always on the lookout for opportunities to improve our team and we look at this as one of those opportunities", Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said in a news release announcing the trade.
In standard leagues, Adrian Peterson nabbed only six points and zero touchdowns through five games.
So, it's a chicken-or-the-egg-type question: Is Peterson's 27 rushes for 81 yards at 3.0-per carry the reason New Orleans ranks near the bottom half of the league in rushing, or is it Sean Payton's reliance on the passing game that kept the running back on the sideline more often than not, hence the team's terrible rushing totals?
That lack of balance has affected the Cardinals passing game. Fitzgerald sent out a tweet with an animated photo of a boy dancing happily under the heading "My mood this morning".
Peterson was already out at practice in Arizona on Wednesday.
Peterson's mentality meshes with what coach Bruce Arians said he saw on film from the running back in limited opportunities this season. Peterson had not been frequently used with New Orleans, hoping that the Cardinals and their depleted running back situation provide a haven of touches going forward. But Keim figures he's an improvement over what they had before.
