Adrian Peterson Already Bitching About His Role In New Orleans: ‘I Didn’t Sign Up For Nine Snaps’
Back when I heard that Adrian Peterson had signed a contract with the New Orleans Saints I thought, “That’s an odd team for him to join.” They already have 27-year-old Mark Ingram who just rushed 1,043 yards on 5.1 yards per carry. How much playing time does Peterson think he’s going to get down there? Then the Saints went and drafted Alvin Kamara only adding to my confusion.
It seemed to me that somewhere like Baltimore, Denver, Washington, the Giants or even Green Bay would have been better fits as they all had needs at the running back position. But AP chose New Orleans and here’s a shocker: after just one game he’s already complaining about how the Saints are using him.
As many of you saw on Monday night, Peterson appeared to be yelling at head coach Sean Payton about something after playing only five snaps in the first half and giving his new coach the kind of death stare that would Michael Phelps proud.
