If you follow the Detroit Lions, Adrian Peterson is a name that you are all too familiar with. After all, the former Minnesota Vikings running back has averaged over 100 yards rushing and has scored 12 touchdowns in 14 career games against them.

That was before he was he left town and headed south.

Peterson started off the 2017 season as a member of the New Orleans Saints after they signed him to a 2-year, $7 million deal.

But, after only four games, Peterson’s time in New Orleans is over as he reportedly has been traded to the Arizona Cardinals for a conditional pick.

In four games with the Saints, Peterson ran for just 81 yards on 27 carries and did not score a touchdown.
