What's the point of trading for him now?
Nice.

Good spot for him, glad I held on.
This is no longer prime AP  
JonC : 10/10/2017 11:53 am : link
he's a shell.

Reese asleep at the helm. Since this is a sinking rat infested ship.
a lot of miles

in the backfield with Adrian Peterson and Chris Johnson.

Would have been nice to have them in the same backfield 5 or 6 years ago, though not sure you can run that much to make it worth it.

Its not a trade, its more of a switch

Peterson looks shot. I don't think he'll be much better in Arizona.

True but Johnson looks even worse. Ellington has been solid as the receiving back so maybe it works w/ AP pounding early downs.
Arizona is in the mix in that division  
Chris684 : 10/10/2017 12:03 pm : link
they probably figure why not? Especially with Palmer, they are thinking for right now only.
At least Saints may get a late round pick  
ZogZerg : 10/10/2017 12:11 pm : link
for the mistake they made in signing him.

Cj2k is definitely washed at this point. I just don't see the burst that AP used to have anymore. He looks very middling. Indecisive, not running with the same authority/conviction. ARZ doesn't block that well up front, either.

It's a worthwhile gamble, I just don't see it panning out. I think Peterson finally got caught by Father Time. Happens to everyone.
Dropped  
Mr. Nickels : 10/10/2017 12:20 pm : link
him 2 days ago too...
I don't think AP is shot at all.  
Keith : 10/10/2017 12:46 pm : link
He's certainly not prime AP(which was one of the best ever), but he can still run. He just wasnt a good fit in NO and never got the opp.
If he has anything left at all...  
Dan in the Springs : 10/10/2017 12:49 pm : link
I wish they'd done this last week against Philly.
RB isn't the top priority  
81_Great_Dane : 10/10/2017 12:56 pm : link
If they were going to make a trade, it's OL help they need. And they may yet.
not sure what they gave up...  
BillKo : 10/10/2017 1:31 pm : link
but AZ needs someone to make the defense commit more to the run.

Carson Palmer is throwing the ball better, and this could really help. Esp in a division that certainly is up for grabs.
Cards release Chris Johnson

He'll probably be better than Johnson, but I think he's very clearly lost a step and is far from the guy he was a few years ago.

I wouldn't count on him doing much.

And in the fantasy world, he's still not a guy I'd want on my roster.
I'm sure he'll whip them into contention

Dumbest post all day, congrats
Reese asleep at the wheel? Please, running behind that oline  
SterlingArcher : 10/10/2017 6:25 pm : link
no RB would be successful. We are looking for a 100 yard game, is there one in sight?
Cards ain't going anywhere either  
djm : 10/10/2017 7:56 pm : link
One of the more overrated teams the last two years.
