The Arizona Cardinals made a stunning move this morning by trading a conditional 2018 sixth-round draft pick for New Orleans Saints running back Adrian Peterson, and for the second time this year have released running back Chris Johnson.

This move to add a running back comes a month after their September roster addition of former Patriots running back D.J. Foster, who played college football just 30 minutes away, at Arizona State University.

Vikes! Yikes!!

It all went terribly bad quickly on a bad, bad, terrible night in Viking land.

Shades of Brett Favre and the 2009 NFC Championship game haunted this game when comparing how the franchises seem to be going in opposite directions.  Even memories of the famous kick by Garrett Hartley could not make this game palatable.

Not only was the loss of Zach Strief and Terron Armstead felt but Max Unger and Larry Warford both struggled mightily according to Profootball Focus (PFF) stats.  The run game was non-existent (Adrian Peterson–come on down) and the loss of Willie Snead was felt.  Most players stayed in on offense to protect Brees leaving precious few wide receivers against the Vikings secondary.

New Orleans Saints Select Alvin Kamara

The New Orleans Saints traded up to acquire Tennessee’s Alvin Kamara with the 67th pick of the 2017 NFL draft.

The Saints had to trade back into the second round to nab Kamara by giving up their 2018 2nd round pick and this year’s 7th round pick to the San Francisco 49ers. Sean Payton has a specific vision for Kamara who will join Mark Ingram and Adrian Peterson in the backfield. The Saints conducted a private workout for Kamara during the draft process.  Payton envisions Kamara as a Reggie Bush/Darren Sproles type of player who can also field kicks.  Kamara was one of four team captains selected last spring.

Kamara led the Tennessee Volunteers with 127 yards and two touchdowns, eight catches for 161 yards and another TD, in addition to a 16-yard kick return in a 45-38 double-overtime loss to Texas A&M. The 312 yards represented a single-game record for Tennessee and put Kamara on NFL draft radar.
