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.

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!
