You may have noticed late in the first half of the Saints abysmal display versus the Vikings, a visually heated exchange between running back Adrian Peterson and head coach Sean Payton. Apparently that wasn't the case.
The New Orleans Saints hosted the Houston Texans in their 3rd preseason game of the year and their 1st home preseason game this year. The Texans had more on their minds than just a football game with Hurricane/Tropical storm Harvey causing a ton of rain and flooding in Houston and in Texas...
It was reported yesterday that Adrian Peterson wouldn't be taking the field in the New Orleans Saints first preseason game vs. the Browns. Now it looks like two other main starters won't see any action either.
Whether your reaction to AP coming to the Saints was "Hooray," or it was "Really?" the fact of the matter is the dude is going to be on the field this season. What he'll do for the offense is yet to be fully seen. We all know what he's capable of.
As the news breaks about Adrian Peterson signing with the Saints, some of his now fellow teammates took to Twitter to welcome him. Also, someone did a bang-up job to show what he'll look like in a Saints uniform!
The Minnesota Vikings have announced today that running back Adrian Peterson will participate in practice this week and is expected to play in Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints in the Superdome.
