We have to get Adrian Peterson into the Hall of Fame as a Saint

It must become our life's mission.
Adrian Peterson's time in New Orleans will be nothing more than a small footnote in his career.

All the hype and expectations amounted to nothing more than him spending a couple of months in black and gold. And now that has come to an end with the running back being traded to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for a conditional draft pick, according to an ESPN report.

New Orleans signed Peterson to a two-year deal, of which $3.25 million was guaranteed. The Saints will have a $1.25 million salary-cap charge for his signing bonus in 2018.
As many fans know, Hall of Fame running back (and LSU star) Jim Taylor ended his career with the expansion Saints in 1967.  Through 4 games these were his numbers:

41 rushes for 138 yards and one touchdown

12 receptions for 61 yards and one touchdown

Adrian Peterson's stats through 4 games in 2017:

27 rushes for 81 yards

2 receptions for 4 yards

Man, we didn't even get to see him fumble once.  But there was that one time when Peterson fumbling in the Superdome made all the difference in our lives. His HOF bust needs to at least have a little fleur-de-lis bezel on it.
