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.

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.
