Peterson: Trade to Cards an 'answer to prayers'


TEMPE, Ariz. -- Adrian Peterson's prayers were answered at around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.
He was on a conference call with his wife, Ashley, when his phone began ringing and lighting up with text messages, informing him that he was traded from the New Orleans Saints to the Arizona Cardinals. He began searching social media and then turned on the TV to see the breaking news splashed across the screen. He got excited.
"It was like, 'Thank you, Jesus,'" Peterson said. "He answers prayers."
In his first news conference as a member of the Arizona Cardinals on Wednesday, Peterson said he didn't push to get traded from the Saints, nor did he ask for a trade, but he was looking to get out of New Orleans.
