New Orleans, LA – Yes yes y’all [Yes y’all!] (Charlie Brown voice; and no not the cartoon) The NFL regular season is a good 4+ months away, and already we are siked for the start! Naturally off-season trades and acquisitions occur, though Adrian “AP” Peterson going to the New Orleans Saints is like a HUGE motherbleeping deal!!
Peterson just finalized a 2-year, $7 million agreement ($3.5M guaranteed; max value incentives and escalators $15.25M) with the New Orleans Saints. Adrian Peterson was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings seventh overall in the 2007 NFL Draft, and has been the face of the Vikings for the past decade. This trade is monumental for two main reasons: (1 Peterson has played in Minnesota his entire career, thus this being the first time we’ll see Peterson wearing a different team’s jersey (2 Peterson is arguably one of the best running backs to ever play in the NFL, and now he’s going to run aside one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history (that being Drew Brees)
