The Arizona Cardinals entered the season with star running back, and MVP candidate David Johnson set to carry the offense. The Saints made a decision to trade Peterson and his newly-signed, two-year contract to Arizona in exchange for a 2018 undisclosed draft selection.

He finished with 81 yards on 27 carries and no touchdowns.

The Green Bay Packers could have been the team trading away veteran running back Adrian Peterson on Tuesday.

Peterson fell behind both Mark Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara in the Saints' backfield. The four-time All-Pro and seven-time Pro Bowl selection signed a two-year contract with the Saints during the offseason after spending his first 10 National Football League seasons with the Minnesota Vikings.

New Orleans will receive a conditional pick as part of the deal, per ESPN.

The three-time Pro Bowler struggled mightily, however, rushing for 114 yards on 45 carries, which equates to an average of just 2.5 yards per tote. However, he suffered a dislocated wrist in the first game and was placed on injured reserve, his season over. "First off, obviously we settled for too many field goals offensively and all of a sudden got in a catch-up mode".

Will Peterson help provide the balance that they desperately need? For years, Peterson has defied expectations for an aging running back but seems to have settled back down to earth. "But unfortunately that's the way the game played out".

Peterson was hoping he would get the chance to exploit nickel defenses in New Orleans and see fewer eight- and nine-man fronts than ever before.
