What do you guys think it would take to get him? 6th round pick?

I quit posting a while back, but this Adrian Peterson coming back to MN nonsense is so idiotic I had to post. He has no value to this offense, he is a one dimensional two down back. Part of the reason the WR's and the passing game have been so successful this year is because of Cooks value as a 3 down back. It keeps Defenses off balance when your not predictable. Murry/Mckinnon will work so much better than AP ever will. AP is not the same explosive player he was earlier in his career. He is in the perfect situation behind future HOFer Drew Brees to thrive....but he hasn't. He is third on the Depth chart in NO.

Randy today is still probably better than 60% of the WR's currently playing in the NFL.

However, that doesn't change the fact that he

a) Blamed the Vikings for the way they treated him after he beat his child, even though they paid his entire 2014 salary until the NFL suspended him, more than $10 million. He and his agent then turned that supposed mistreatement into a very lucrative contract extension.

b) Played 20 games in 3 seasons and earned nearly $40 million.

c) Was definitely losing his effectiveness last year.

Again, nothing but love for what AP brought us. He will be in the Ring of Honor and the HOF, without a doubt. But the last three seasons were not good, despite leading the league in rushing in '15. It leaves a bad taste in the mouth, even for a big AP fan like me.
This this this!!!

Yeah, let’s trade away draft picks for a back that averages 3 yards a carry and causes a distraction on the sidelines during a national televised game.
