Sources: Saints trade RB Peterson to Cardinals

The New Orleans Saints have traded running back Adrian Peterson to the Arizona Cardinals for a conditional draft pick, sources told ESPN’s Dianna Russini.

Peterson, 32, has rushed 27 times for 81 yards through the first four games this season.

He has been vastly overshadowed by other Saints running backs Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. Kamara and Ingram have combined for 131 scrimmage yards per game

Peterson, who spent the first 10 seasons of his career with the Minnesota Vikings, needs 485 more yards rushing this season to become 10th all-time in rushing.

He hasn’t scored a touchdown this season but if he scores three he will become the ninth player to reach 100 rushing touchdowns.
