Saints reportedly trade Adrian Peterson to Cardinals for conditional draft

The Adrian Peterson Era in New Orleans lasted all of four games. According to a report from ESPN's Dianna Russini, the Saints have traded Peterson to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for a conditional draft pick. 

Peterson signed with the Saints this offseason after spending the first 10 years of his likely Hall of Fame career with the Minnesota Vikings. He was released by the Vikings prior to the start of free agency to cut salary, and ended up taking a two-year, $8.25 million contract with New Orleans. 

He fell behind both Mark Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara in the pecking order early in the season, and received only 27 carries across four games, with which he gained a total of 81 yards. 

The Cardinals' running game has fallen by the wayside after star running back David Johnson dislocated his wrist in the team's season opener. They have turned to the combination of Chris Johnson, Kerwynn Williams, and Andre Ellington to replace Johnson, with limited success.
