Adrian Peterson: I have so much left

Adrian Peterson: I have so much left

Four games into the season, the running back who had always been the focal point of the offense in Minnesota was playing a backup's role, taking fewer snaps than either Mark Ingram or Alvin Kamara and struggling to live up to his reputation.

What are your thoughts on Payton's explanation as to why the Saints chose to trade Peterson to the Cardinals?

"When you lose a running back, the numbers - as far as carries and things go - kind of defines itself a little bit more", Kamara said. "Just the opportunities I've had to talk to him were brief".

"Only thing that I was unsettled with was my role". Our relationship, I'd say, has been fantastic.

"These are all hypotheticals", Payton said. "I'm always going to compete, never shy away from competition, never shy away from anything", Ingram said.

Talking to reporters after his first practice with the Cardinals on Wednesday, Peterson declined to comment on the lawsuit.

Adrian Peterson remains a big name, but none of our trio of Fantasy experts expects much from him in Arizona Wildcats - none have him inside of the top-48 even after his trade to the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday.

"I wasn't pushing to be moved, but I'd be lying to say I didn't want a change of scenery", Peterson said, according to The Arizona Republic. "As I said earlier, if you don't get the pads on him and you don't get multiple sets and take good angles, he's going to break tackles". He finished his Saints career with just 27 caries for 81 yards. "It was an opportunity, really, where he was going to obviously get somewhere and be featured more and I am happy that that opportunity has come up and we were able to make the trade". Do you think he's a better fit for the Cardinals offensive system? Arizona could have drafted him with the No. 5 pick in 2007 but chose tackle Levi Brown instead. Peterson's playtime was significantly less than Ingram's and Kamara's.

He played only six snaps with four carries for 4 yards in their last game - a 20-0 win vs. the Miami Dolphins in London in Week 4. "I'd love to play at least four or five more years, God willing". I have a lot left in the tank. And I'm hoping that he goes and proves it in Arizona. And will Peterson get his long awaited touches that he has been campaigning for this season?

"Outside of the role that I played, it was a wonderful experience", he said. "Anything I needed to know, he was an open book and I was thankful for that. I let him know that through a text".

Peterson believes that you'll see him find more success than he had in New Orleans in his new number.

Both parties are hoping to thrive after going their separate ways.
