Remember the Deshaun Watson one(s)?

Yep, it's crazy to think about the state of the boards less than a year ago. Trade Ryan, start Suhaub, and tank for Deshaun Watson.

The Raiders are so RB hungry they are trying to trade for an out of shape, retired Marshawn Lynch out of retirement rather than sign AP.

Please do.

AP's never had a good game against us. Please let that trend continue.

That's actually kinda interesting.  Just taking your word for it here,  but that's impressive.

He reportedly wanted 8 million a year. He's not going to pay for less than 2 and any more than that is unnecessary when we have the best RB tandem in the league. 

I was looking for this response.  

Assuming the actual deal would be a little less than that, it's still very far from free. I also think that would be an unnecessary risk to the current flow with Freeman and Coleman. It's not like we're talking about taking carries and snaps away from your typical nfl running backs either.  Free and Coleman could both easily start for a large percentage of teams in the league.  

Sometimes the best moves are the ones you don't make.

We don't need AP. He is also not going to come cheap. Why do so many on here think that a (albeit aging) high profile player is suddenly going to y say "I'll play for whatever you want to pay me". AP may wnst to play for a contender, but he also wants to get paid like a premier player. 

We don't need AP, because we already have two very capable RB's, that combined won't cost as much as AP would this year. Also, how do you carry on the "Brotherhood" mantra if you are willing to take playing time away from one of the more recognizable faces of the terminology?

AP needs to go where there is a true need for his services, and that is not Atlanta.

Yep. Don't believe he's ever even sniffed 100 yards in all his games against us.

To back my statement up:

http://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/P/PeteAd01/gamelog/?opp_id=ca

In his four games against us:

1. 2008 - 77 yds rushing

2. 2009 - 35 yds rushing

3. 2011 - 83 yds rushing

4. 2013 - 62 yds rushing

Update---

Report: Adrian Peterson willing to accept $5 million or less for ‘right situation’

http://www.nola.com/saints/index.ssf/2017/04/adrian_peterson_willing_to_pla.html

Be like the Pats and Maximize the Team to the MAX!

Pats have around Four Rbs, INJs., and the last one was hottest during playoffs!

Take advantage of the Falcons being a championship team

=Players sign for less!

AP would add more to this Team than anyone on Defense could add, TOP Advantage!

Power back late in the game to break their backs! 

Just let AP Compete for the RB Job, 

if He doesn't make it back from INJ to All-Pro, cut him!

To the Saints Fan, Saints D, LOL!

Brees is old too!

So is Freeney. Tony Gonzalez was 33 when we signed him.
