The Cardinals, who acquired Peterson from the New Orleans Saints on Tuesday, had their new running back meet with the media for the first time since the deal after practice today.

"He's run our style of offense for awhile and it's just learning terminology, " Arians said.

Peterson was welcomed with open arms by wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, a good friend whom the running back described as "like family". "He knows what I've been going through and he was just excited for me". With the addition of Peterson, the Cardinals add another player with a bunch of Pro Bowl appearances. Entering Sunday's game against Detroit in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Ingram has a team-leading 170 yards on 42 carries, and has caught 15 passes for 125 yards. "I look to play four or five more years", Peterson said, via Darren Urban of the team's website. "I've been in situations where I didn't have the best offensive line in front of me and was able to be productive and accomplish some great things as a team and individually as well".

The four-time All-Pro and seven-time Pro Bowl selection was drafted by the Vikings seventh overall in the 2007 National Football League draft.

"Not to say that wasn't necessarily the case there in New Orleans", Peterson said. "When you have three backs in that system and what they ask from a running back, we all could do it. Mark (Ingram) could have done it as well but the young guy was someone that they were intrigued about and he pretty much got the role".

That's why I'd suggest stashing him on the bench as a desperate RB2 or flex play.

Most of the Saints are hoping Peterson gets the playing time he craves in Arizona. Arizona could have drafted him with the No. 5 pick in 2007 but chose tackle Levi Brown instead.
