    The Saints just sent zack Strief the IR. Adrian Peterson isn't happy with his role in New Orleans. I would really look into this. Peterson still has a lot in the tank. He could make a real difference on this team. Would you trade D Brown for AP????

    I would!!!

    Peterson wants to be a franchise back, which IMO he no longer has the ability to be. He'd be sharing a backfield here too, with Lamar Miller as the primary pass catching back. Don't think he'd be any happier here than in NOLA.

    They have Ryan ramcyzck ready to step in I think.

    I think this is in the realm of not going to happen, but just for shits and giggles I’d be ok with that trade if we also included Lamar Miller and then got back some OL and/or DB depth.

    They have some decent young players at those positions that could be better than what we have now.

    No thanks. I'd prefer to either get Duane back on the field for us or to recoup depleted draft resources for him.

    Meanwhile I'd just as soon see Foreman get more early game touches as far as our backfield is concerned.

    Ramcyzk has looked horrible. They have no one on that team that is even close talent wise and NFL ready as Brown. This could be Bree's last year.

    Yeah well, Saints fans and more importantly their coaches seem pleased with him so far.

    What has AP done to show anyone that he has "a lot left in the tank"? I'd say AP has shown quite the opposite.

    No thanks. Keep Brown, trade him for picks or trade him for secondary help.

    Yep. And he's a little bitch on the sideline. O'Brien would eat his lunch for the crap he pulled on Sean Payton a couple of weeks ago. Dude got into a pissing match with Tom Brady on the sideline, so I doubt he'd take any crap from an over-the-hill prima donna RB.

    I would consider trading Miller for AP and a 2018 mid round draft pick. Foreman, Blue and AP could do pretty well and the Texans definitely need the 2018 draft pick. It's not like Miller is all that and a bag of chips.

    I understand your logic, but I do not think AP is the team player that O'Brien and Smith like for their team. Dude is quoted saying "I didn’t sign up for nine snaps". But, the truth is he did when he signed with a pass-happy offense that has multiple tailback options.

    Plus, we all know McNair does not perceive him as "Texans worthy" after that child abuse case.

    Full disclosure: I admit bias. I just don't like the guy.

    The trade idea wasn't smart

    The fact that a poster thinks McNair will allow a trade for a child abuser is well, what I said upthread. (Stupid)

    I'm much more interested in the draft pick than AP.
