Sean Payton calls Adrian Peterson trade "common sense"

However, his departure does clear things up in New Orleans, thankfully.

Payton said he had a good relationship with the veteran running back, and enjoyed talking about the team's offense and his role.

A lawsuit filed in Minneapolis accuses former Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson of defaulting on a $2.4 million loan.

Peterson said he met every Tuesday with Saints coach Sean Payton to have a "conversation". "Adrian and I have talked a ton each week".

"Only thing that I was unsettled with was my role. He hasn't had an opportunity for one reason or another in New Orleans to get many touches, so he's going to be fresh".

But the running backs who remain in New Orleans spoke highly of him.

He signed a two-year contract with the Saints this offseason but was languishing on the sidelines there.

"It's like, 'Thank you Jesus, '" Peterson said.

Teachers Insurance & Annuity Association of America grew its holdings in Spirit Realty Capital by 1.5% during the second quarter. On average, equities research analysts predict that Spirit Realty Capital, Inc will post $0.25 EPS for the current fiscal year.

"These are all hypotheticals", Payton said.

I mean, who else is going to run the ball in the desert? He practiced Wednesday, when the Cardinals held a walk-through in preparation for Wednesday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The trade of Peterson to Arizona, in exchange for a conditional pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, freed New Orleans of the complexity of finding reps for a trio of backs and sent Peterson to a team that is in more need of his services.

The lawsuit filed Tuesday in Hennepin County Court says Peterson failed to meet the bank's demands and must pay the balance, plus interest. "It was something I was praying about". "It just didn't work out".

Peterson's presence out of the backfield was nonexistent despite the Saints' penchant for throwing the ball. "I think this is all for the better". Peterson's playtime was significantly less than Ingram's and Kamara's.

Ingram, coming off of his first 1,000-yard season, is still the team's best all-around back, averaging 4.0 yards per carry as he continued to take the bulk of the snaps. "I look to play four to five more years, God willing", he said. He still has a lot of juice left in the tank. And I'm hoping that he goes and proves it in Arizona. This morning, Peterson expressed elation upon learning of his trade to Arizona, a team beyond his fix.

"All the experience he has, he was trying to funnel as much as he could into me", Kamara said. "He knows what I've been going through and he was just excited for me". "I let him know that through a text".

Both parties are hoping to thrive after going their separate ways.
