Adrian Peterson had been overshadowed by Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara in New Orleans.

Kamara and Ingram have combined for 131 scrimmage yards per game this season.

Peterson’s 3.0 yards per rush are still better, however, than the Cardinals players with the most carries this season. Chris Johnson averaged 2.5 yards on 45 rushes, and Williams has averaged 1.7 on 19 rushes.

Peterson needs 485 yards to become 10th-leading rusher in NFL history. He hasn’t scored a touchdown this season, but if he scores three, he will become the ninth player to reach 100 rushing touchdowns.

“We are always on the lookout for opportunities to improve our team and we look at this as one of those opportunities,” general manager Steve Keim said in a statement. “What Adrian has accomplished in this league is well-established. Our need for a spark in our running game right now is also obvious and we are excited to give him the chance to provide that.”

The Saints will receive a conditional 2018 sixth-round pick Cheap NFL Jerseys Paypal from the Cardinals in compensation, league sources told Schefter.

The Cardinals’ running game has been a major weakness since David Johnson suffered a fractured wrist in Week 1. Arizona is last in the NFL in rushing yards per game (51.8) and per carry (2.59).

The team signed Chris Johnson after Week 1 to complement Kerwynn Williams, Andre Ellington and Eli Penny, but injuries to the left side of Arizona’s offensive line have Cheap Barcelona Jerseys prevented the Cards’ running game from finding its footing.

Reggie Wayne picks a QB other than Luck or Manning as hardest passer

Congratulations are in order for Curtis Painter. On Tuesday, Reggie Wayne gave him an unofficial award that pertains to playing quarterback.

When Wayne was asked about who threw the hardest passes, he didn't name Andrew Luck or Peyton Manning (before his arm stopped functioning like a normal arm last year). He also didn't name Tom Brady, who threw to Wayne this past summer during Patriots training camp. Instead, Wayne chose Curtis Painter.

It's 2016, and we're talking about Curtis Painter.
