AP signed a 7 million dollar deal with the Saints, after being released from the Vikings. After four games with the Saints, he was traded to the Cardinals for a 2018 draft pick. The Cardinals needed a running back badly after having some of the worst running stats in the NFL with Johnson gone.
Adrian Peterson playing on the Saints did not go well. Peterson was traded to replace injured Running Back, David Johnson, who was released after the trade. Peterson dominated the NFL and the Running Back position for almost a decade and his career is starting to look like its coming to an end after having only 27 carries for 81 yards in his first 4 games with the Saints.
Will AP Be The Right Fit?
AP was one of the few running backs the Cards knew they could get and probably the best and cheapest, but is he the right fit? In my opinion, I think so. Cason Palmer has had a pretty successful year passing and I think with a little bit of running back power, they can get a little bit farther up in the rankings. Peterson will take the starting role at running back position for the Cardinals and if he fails to play well this could be his last chance and he’ll have to say goodbye to his NFL Career.
