Days before the draft, Watson said teams would live with the consequencesif they draft Trubisky instead of him. On Thursday, Watson doubled down on those comments, saying it would be a slap in the faceif Trubisky comes off the board first. Well, Trubisky was drafted before Watson. The Bears traded up with the San Francisco 49ers to take Trubisky with the second overall pick.
I am excited to be joining the New Orleans Saints. Im really looking forward to this opportunity. Most importantly, I chose this team because it just felt right within my spirit. Additionally, my wife and family added their confirmation with the same feelings. On offense, it goes without saying that the Saints are really solid behind Drew Brees. I feel like my skill set can make them even more dominant as a unit.
Peterson will share carries with running back Mark Ingram, who ran for over 1,000 yards in 2016 in his best season since being drafted by New Orleans in 2011. It will be the Saints hope that by reducing Petersons role and making him a complementary running back there will be less wear-and-tear on his knees, which have caused Peterson to miss the majority of two seasons in the last three years.
Fans wont need to wait long to see if there are any bad feelings between Peterson and the Vikings, as New Orleans and Minnesota are set to face each other in the first week of Monday Night Football.
