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.
Former New Orleans Saints running back Adrian Peterson met with the Arizona media Wednesday following his first practice with the Cardinals, the team he was traded to Tuesday morning. "I'm not going to get into all of that". "Our needs for a spark in our running game right now is also obvious and we are excited to give him the chance to provide that".
"I wasn't pushing to be moved, but I'd be lying to say I didn't want a change of scenery", Peterson said, according to The Arizona Republic.
The duo, by most measures, already had defined the rotation.
That lack of balance has affected the Cardinals passing game. But Palmer is second in the National Football League in passing yards with 1,573 yards. Peterson had rushed 27 times for 81 yards and caught two passes for four yards.
Peterson was later essentially asked if praying for a better opportunity was all he did. We basically had two feature backs, with Mark and Adrian, and that was before drafting Kamara and seeing the contributions that he's been able to have in the expanded role. Peterson was the odd man out in a crowded Saints backfield.

Counties with at least one case include - Clark, Clermont, Cuyahoga, Defiance, Franklin, Greene, Hamilton (2), Logan and Summit. The Mississippi State Department of Health is confirming three new cases of West Nile virus.
"I really appreciate the time with him".
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.
"Do I still got it?" But, again, I think this is all for the better.
Instead he looks to have what we hope is a page from a playbook in hand.
Arians said Peterson will play on first and second downs, with Andre Ellington taking over on third downs. So, of course, in my mind was like, OK, I know that's not the case. He can go. I'm hoping that he goes and proves it in Arizona'.
