There is no question the Arizona Cardinals are trying to find an answer to their running game woes.
After the injury to All-Pro David Johnson, the Cardinals have given Kerwynn Williams and Chris Johnson both a shot.
The results will be fun to watch, hopefully, but there is no question it has gone a long way in at least boosting morale amongst the players.
The media and fans on the other hand are not as enthusiastic.
Addition of AP would be more exciting if we had a decent Oline. I am confident the left side will get better with Boone/Humphries though.— Alexander Mann (@MannROTB) October 10, 2017
If nothing else, Adrian Peterson won't make the Cardinals' running game any worse. Along with that, adding him is pretty cool.— Adam Green (@theAdamGreen) October 10, 2017
I only know Emmitt Smith from his Cardinals years so I'm happy the next generation gets to experience that with Adrian Peterson— Justis Mosqueda (@JuMosq) October 10, 2017
Adrian Peterson hasn't scored a TD since Week 17, 2015.— Andrew Siciliano (@AndrewSiciliano) October 10, 2017
Can't protect. Not good as a receiver. Is slow. Doesn't produce Yards after contact like he used to. Horrible line. At least Fitz is happy.— Adrian Franke (@adrianbb89) October 10, 2017
Reaction to Peterson trade to Cardinals: Yawn. Arizona adds another aging star to a team that already has too many.— Don Banks (@DonBanks) October 10, 2017
Well, we finally got Adrian Peterson and Larry Fitzgerald on the same team like we always wanted.— Eric Thompson (@eric_j_thompson) October 10, 2017
I know many fans have given up, but I'm glad the team hasn't. If AZ can stay around .500 till DJ gets back, you never know— Kyle (@marblekyle) October 10, 2017

Feels like window has closed on this squad,after the playoff blowout in Car ? Team has been pretty Mediocre Had Keim/Arians magic gone ?— 90Nintey (@bassblaster101) October 10, 2017
why not? Worth a try— Greg Tripp Linton (@agentlinton) October 10, 2017
Better burst than CJ. Still need o line. As evidence of Larry tweet, could help locker room spirit. Hopefully low pick. Time will tell.— Chris Medina (@chrismedina) October 10, 2017
He would never cuss out BA so why not https://t.co/ALrw6a1tVH— j'dan (@JessicaSaxena) October 10, 2017
1st of a couple moves to try and salvage the season...I hope— Adam Isbell (@adamisbell) October 10, 2017
Many fans are hoping this at least boost the run game potential for the Arizona Cardinals. However, if that doesn't occur, it's at a cost of nothing.
If Peterson does help, it makes the return of David Johnson less of a rush, he can potentially buy time and not force Johnson to feel rushed back, again only if he is good which is the entire question that everyone has.
It is a low risk to take, but do you like the move?
Do you like the Adrian Peterson trade?
