The Pulse: It’s OK to trade a high draft pick for Adrian Peterson

Apr 29, 2015, 5:03 PM | Updated: 5:03 pm

At some point, the Adrian Peterson saga has to come to an end.


None of us are sure when exactly that will be, though the thought is it may come soon with the NFL Draft right around the corner.

The Vikings, it is believed, will want at least a draft pick in exchange for their all-time leading rusher, and according according to reports, the Cardinals are reluctant to part with a first-round selection in a deal.

But should they?

In our Sanderson Ford Poll Question of the Day, we asked what round pick you would be willing to send to the Vikings in a trade.

The opinions were certainly mixed, but the most votes went against the Cardinals’ supposed mindset. Of the 2,111 submitted, 801 — or 38 percent — would be fine with moving a first-round choice.

The next-highest total, 723 votes, went to a second-round pick, with a third-round choice earning 353 votes.
