Adrian Peterson left the New Orleans Saints team facility last night without an official offer from the Saints that we are aware of, but the town is still buzzing at the possibility. What is interesting to me is the fact that the Saints have former Heisman Trophy Mark Ingram whom I feel is underutilized. Now, in no way am I even suggesting that they don’t make a concerted effort to sign Adrian Peterson. They should exhaust every resource and do it before the draft. My concern is the Saints over reliance on Drew Brees. Yes Brees passed for over 5,000 yards, (the 5th time he has done that in 10 seasons with the Saints), but are you aware of how great of a season Mark Ingram had? Mark Ingram was TIED with Ezekiel Elliot in yards per carry at 5.1! The difference is very clear. Elliot carried the ball 322 times while Ingram only carried the ball 205 times! Which by the way was the second most he ever carried as a Saint. So I’m concerned that now possibly having 2 potential 1,000 yard rushers on a team that the offensive philosophy isn’t to run the ball will scare Peterson away. He wants to break Emmitt Smith’s all-time rushing record. In order to do that, he has to be in a system that will afford him the opportunity of running the ball as much as he can. So, do I think he would be a great fit in New Orleans, YES!!! Do I think he will, unfortunately, no.
