Lawsuit: New Cardinals running back Adrian Peterson defaulted on $2.4 million loan

Lawsuit: New Cardinals running back Adrian Peterson defaulted on $2.4 million loan

The future Hall-of-Famer saw a limited role with the Saints and told the media that he was praying for more. By contrast, Ingram was on the field for 52.9 percent of New Orleans' offensive plays.

"I've been knowing Larry for a long time", Peterson said, "and I've never heard the excitement in his voice that I heard when he called". "Me and coach Payton we talked, the four weeks I was there, on Tuesday we were having a conversation". It was that the 11-year veteran simply couldn't carve out enough space and carries from the extremely productive incumbent (Ingram) and the head-turning rookie (Kamara) to establish a rhythm in the Saints' offense.

Adrian Peterson remains a big name, but none of our trio of Fantasy experts expects much from him in Arizona Wildcats - none have him inside of the top-48 even after his trade to the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday.

AP recounted his Hail Mary for a starting RB gig after Cardinals practice today - "Hey, God, I need you to answer this prayer for me".

"I'm sure if they could flash back, they probably would have did things differently", Peterson said.

Peterson spent just four games with the Saints, but the locker room in New Orleans appreciated his work ethic and his ability as a teammate.

Peterson arrives in Arizona some 10 years late. But, again, I think this is all for the better. So, of course, in my mind was like, OK, I know that's not the case. I feel like he'll get a great opportunity in Arizona. "I let him know that through a text".

Arians said Peterson will play on first and second downs, with Andre Ellington taking over on third downs.

"No matter who is here or wherever I'm at, I'm always gonna compete, I'm gonna fight and put my best foot forward", Ingram said. "He'll get to go out there and prove to everybody what he wants to prove to them, that he still can do this and that he still has a lot of juice in the tank".
