John DeShazier: Saints player appreciate time they had with Adrian Peterson

John DeShazier: Saints player appreciate time they had with Adrian Peterson

"I mean, he's a great player, he still has a lot of juice left in the tank". Boone was a teammate of Peterson's last season in Minnesota.

Peterson agreed to a two-year, incentive-laden deal with the Saints about a week before the draft, which included only $3.5 million guaranteed, including a $2.5 million signing bonus that will still count for $1.25 million against the Saints' 2018 salary cap.

He knows he won't be playing behind the greatest offensive line. Now that Adrian Peterson has been traded to Arizona, the Saints have a clearer vision for a running game that increasingly features rookie Alvin Kamara, and coach Sean Payton no longer has to answer questions about the Peterson's lack of usage in the offense.

That is 23 Pro Bowls between three players.

"I think it's all for the best, certainly for him", Brees said of Peterson.

This season, Ingram has 295 yards from scrimmage, including 170 yards on 42 rushes - about 4 yards per carry.




And he is grateful to be a featured back again. "It shows that you're appreciated and that someone in the organization believes in you, in what you're able to do".

And although Payton has mentioned that the National Football League, unlike the NBA, holds its draft after free agency, a schedule that leaves some uncertainty to a team's true needs, the coach wasn't able to say whether or not he'd have held off on signing Peterson if he knew the Saints would land Kamara. "Me and coach Payton we talked, the four weeks I was there, on Tuesday we were having a conversation". "They are two very complete backs, you know, that can be in in any given situation whether that's running in between the tackles or outside the tackles or catching balls out of the backfield splitting them out, picking up protection - you know those guys can do it all".

Peterson will not wear his customary No. 28.

"We had a conversation". ". I'll be wearing a different number".

Peterson doesn't mind. Johnson once told Peterson he paved the way for backs like Johnson.

Peterson arrives in Arizona some 10 years late. "It's going to be cool to pick his brain and learn from him". "I'm here now. Things have come full circle and I'm going to make the most of my opportunity".
