Adrian Peterson to Arizona?

No, this is not an unfounded rumor.  Yes, I was just as stunned as you to hear it.  But none other than Adrian Peterson himself suggested that he could be drafted by the Arizona Cardinals.  On Saturday evening he joined Evan Cohen on Fox Sports Radio and was asked…

Adrian, if you had to give me two teams that you may play for — your gut feeling as to where you end up in the draft and those millions of dollars that you’re going to make would be riding on it, you tell me what two teams?

I would say Cleveland or Arizona.

Arizona you think is a possibility even though Edgerrin James is there?

Yeah, yeah, I think it’s a possibility.

Well, I guess Peterson would know better than anyone else considering he’s the one who works out and interviews with all these teams.  But with the money the Cardinals have invested in Edgerrin James, I’m skeptical to believe they would also invest top five money on Peterson.  My guess it’s one of two things:

  1. The Cardinals really are interested in Peterson but nobody knows it
  2. That was Adrian’s way of saying he’ll be a top 5 pick

I guess we’ll only find out in a week.

    The Cardinals need some offensive linemen to block for Peterson more than they need Peterson.
