Payton: Peterson trade was 'common sense'

Payton: Peterson trade was 'common sense'

The New Orleans Saints had two top-32 running backs in standard Fantasy scoring last season, and Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara are both considered top-30 players for Week 6 by all three of our experts.

Adrian Peterson is giving all glory to God when it comes to his trade to Arizona - saying Jesus came through for him when he was stuck on the Saints bench.

Peterson was a first round pick selected by the Minnesota Vikings back in 2007 and not only went on to become the most successful running back in the franchise's history, but one of the best running backs the National Football League has ever seen.

"I have so much left".

"Our relationship, I would say, has been fantastic, and (the trade) was an opportunity really where he was going to obviously get somewhere and be featured more, and I'm happy that that opportunity has come up and we were able to make a trade", Payton said. He finished his Saints career with just 27 caries for 81 yards. "So no matter who is here or wherever I'm at, I'm always going to compete, I'm going to fight and put my best foot forward". And I'm hoping that he goes and proves it in Arizona. "It's just a little crowded right now with the third back'". In all, Peterson had been on the field for an average of 11 offensive snaps per game.

Green can revive his effort and said in an interview that he plans to bring it back for a vote, but would not say when. But Green's was a " privileged resolution ", which requires the House to vote on the measure within two days.

"These are all hypotheticals", Payton said.

"Outside of the role that I played, it was a wonderful experience", he said.

"When you think about the rhythm of a game and the amount of plays that you're trying to run, and your balance between run and pass - and even in our passing game, we look at that as an extension of the run game at times, the backs play a big role in that - I'd say that those guys have shown what they can do", said Saints quarterback Drew Brees, referring to Ingram and Kamara. "I let him know that through a text". "Anything I needed to know, he was an open book and I was thankful for that".

"Of course, I was surprised", Edmunds said of Tuesday's trade. Four games into the season, Ingram had played 52.5 percent of the snaps, up from the 46 percent he played a year ago. I do appreciate him for that. Edmunds (concussion), TE Josh Hill (concussion) and CB Sterling Moore (chest) all fully participated in practice.
