All good points. Just seems the Saints could have gotten a cheaper alternative like De'Angelo Williams or one of the other FA RBs to come in for cheaper money that would have fit this offense better than AP. His style of playing doesn't fit. 

 

Maybe they figured Peterson would be better than someone like a DWill if they legitly had to lean on him in the event of an Ingram injury or game scheme shift...

 

Peterson running behind that horrifically awful line last year in Minnesota plus losing Teddy to throw their offense into early season disarray may have been to blame for his crummy output before his injury....

 

It was only the previous year that he led the nfl in rushing....

 

I'm thinking the Saints saw him as the highest upside "maybe" and figured if they were gonna make a run at the super bowl then having Peterson gave them their best shot at catching "Randy to the Pats" lightning (who was also written off as Dunzo while languishing on the Raiders)....

 

It hasn't worked out how anyone wanted it to so far (besides maybe Ingram lol) but perhaps they had a plan in August of running a more traditional offense a bit with Peterson to protect the defense and Brees went out the window as soon as the Vikes were lighting them up in week one...

 

Like Tyson said "Everyone has a plan, 'till they get punched in the mouth."

The RB coach doesn't develop the scheme, call the plays, set the RB rotation, etc. He may want AP to get more work, but it ain't gonna happen as long as Ingram/ Kamara are both upright.

 

especially on a Sean Payton coached team ... AP in the doghouse. 

 

WOOF :lol:

anyone picking up with the news that he could be available for trade? 

 

 

It is all speculation, nothing has come from the organization on this.

Read the article, Teams Believe the Saints want to trade Peterson, it's speculation. Nobody has come out of the woodwork saying the Saints have actually contacted a team trying to trade Peterson. Could it happen? Of course it could but thats about all we know at this point.

Here is the problem.  the Saints outbid every other team for his services.  No one else was willing to give AP that money.  SO why now would another team trade for him.  Even the Vikings, they choose Murray over AP...gotta remember Cook was drafted after both guys signed.  So who would trade for him?

I understand this viewpoint however there are teams out there now that are in a shaky RB situation which they were not in when AP was available. i,e. Arizona.


Now, are they going to trade for him? Probably not, but as the season progresses injuries happen and team needs change which would assist in the Saints facilitating a trade.
I don't think he will get traded, and even he did I don't think his fantasy value changes all that much. Maybe unless Zeke gets suspended before the deadline and AP lines up behind that Oline!
