I remember a few years back thinking I would trade all of the Packers draft picks (the actual draft picks) for Adrian Peterson. With the trade deadline looming, and rumors of Adrian Peterson on the trading block, and for entertainment purposes only, we ask if you would you consider trading 23-year-old Green Bay Packers rookie running back Eddie Lacy (83 carries//352 yards/ 4.2 ave, 2 touchdowns) for Minnesota superstar Adrian Peterson 115 carries/511 yards/4.4 ave., 5 touchdowns)?


why?

Don't know why there are so many "No" votes. That's ridiculous, AP would absolutely tear it up in this offense. The guy is averaging 3.3 yards per carry this year AFTER CONTACT. He'd make a Superbowl run a heck of a lot easier.

The younger the better. I'll pass with hesitation.

Hell to the no! Peterson has been rode hard and put up wet.

No. No. And again, no.

The Packers do not need an all-world back to provide "balance".

Peterson is getting up there in RB mileage.

And, IIRC, he has had two serious injuries (one in college, one in pros) already.

I was not a fan of the Lacy pick (as, I expect you will recall, Wayne). But looks like I was wrong.

And even if Lacy turns out to be a one-year wonder, trading for Peterson makes no sense to me.

If the Packers want to make a "blockbuster" trade (which, of course, Ted does not), go for an OL.

FWIW

Adrian Peterson is 28 years old.
2013: $11.25 million,
2014: $11.75 million,
2015: $12.75 million,
2016: $14.75 million,
2017: $15.75 million
2018: Free Agent


Eddie Lacy is 22 years old and is locked into a salary friendly contract for four seasons.
Signed a four-year, $3.392 million contract. The deal included an $847,208 signing bonus.


You bring on Adrian Peterson for who? What two or three players to eliminate for a RB nearing 30 years old? Peterson isn't going to win the Packers any games. You don't lock up 8 figures in a player that's not going to win you games.

Packers are getting similar production with a younger RB who's costing MILLIONS less.

Lacy's more consistent.

Peterson is good, but his thing is to break off a long run every now and then, after getting stuffed a number of times. Besides I agree, Lacy's much younger.

I think Lacy and Franklin are special.

No, I wouldn't do it. Like said before, we don't need a RB like Peterson to have balance. Lacy is great for our offense, especially having Franklin to back him up.

I guess all the posts above list the reasons why there are so many nos.

I keep reading some talk about getting a Center... but is D-Smith really that bad?

Why not just resign D-Smith?

Also Mike McCarthy said Lang can play Center (which I haven't seen or heard of him talking a snap for sure yet, but I'll trust Mike McCarthy on this one) and they're trying to teach Barclay to play Center (and maybe Sherrod or Bulaga can take RT from Barclay).

EDS has gotten better, but I want to see what the Tretter kid has next training camp. Barclay really shouldn't be starting, he's more of a serviceable utility lineman.

If both Peterson and Lacy cost the same, then sure, I'd prefer Peterson. Peterson is a better running back than Lacy, at this point, and likely will be for at least a couple more seasons. But the reality is they do not cost the same, which makes my vote an easy "no." Not worth the cap hit and the consequences of such.

It would be fun to watch though!

I'm not defending the Queens but what would they benefit from trading Peterson? I mean he's special. Every team has their special player, good or bad. He's their franchise player. He's not Trent Richardson, He's Adrian Peterson. The best running back in the league. Honestly the Vikings would be stupid to trade him unless it was for a franchise QB and no one in their right minds will do that.

I know we are only talking about this for poops and giggles. If there was a trade I could choose for fun/not totally impossible but (very unlikely) it would be acquiring Larry Fitzgerald. The Packers have proved they can develop and produce wins with the next man up in multiple positions. Jordy Nelson has been amazing and the run game has made this offense a multi threat. Boykin has filled in great as well.. I just think adding Larry would make this offense crazy scary. He has shown to be a huge weapon with no other threats around him. I think with Rodgers throwing to him he could return to the status of being considered one of the best in the league behind Megatron/Dez. We have shown we don’t need him these last few games and that’s awesome… I’m just thinking playoffs and facing a defense like Seattle. I think we could struggle against the elite secondary there. With Cobb and others set to return by then I hope I’m totally wrong. That fractured fibula injury sucks..will he be the same when he returns? I hope.. Finley is still a question mark as if he’ll play again. I think a trade like this would set us over the top as far as offense goes. It could be magic! Nelson/Cobb/Fitz/Jones… pick your poison. He’s 30 years old with a big contract sadly. With Jones potently walking after this season and Nelson deserving a rise I wish there was way lol.

When I read this, my first thought was it would be like somebody selling their soul to the devil for some quick pleasure. Yeah, getting Peterson might make the Packers a near sure thing for this years Super Bowl - assuming he didn't pull a hamstring or something hahaha, but after that, it's all down hill. Lacy seems to be the real deal and should be at least solid for a long time, maybe a lot better than solid. Put me down as a big hell no.

A more realistic idea would be trading a 3rd or 4th round pick for Jared Allen, but I wouldn't do that either. Allen couldn't even beat Bakhtiari last night with the whole world watching as he auditioned for a trade to some contender.

The only way I see them trading AP is if they get 2 first and 3 second round picks.

I agree. Obviously if they get an offer that is too good to be true they do it but I highly doubt that will happen. No one is going to give up multiple #1 picks and then some for a 28 year old RB with one ACL tear already and if the vikings accepted anything less than that they would be stupid.

OK, I'll play. I'd rather have Josh Gordon than Fitz but he might take more to get simply because he is so much younger. He would take multiple #1 picks as well IMO. AT least if I am Cleveland I am not taking anything less.
