The Arizona Cardinals addressed many of their key areas of need during the early free agency period, but one position the team has yet to make a move on is at running back.
The Cardinals running game struggled a year ago averaging less than 82 yards per contest. That minimal output in the run game ranked 31st in the NFL, leaving Arizona in desperate need of help at running back.
Andre Ellington surprised as a rookie (652 yards, 5.5 YPC) but didn't have near the same impact in his second season (660 yards, 3.3 YPC) particularly when looking at yards per carry.
After Ellington went down for the season in 2014, relative unknown Kerwynn Williams ended up finishing the year as the Cardinals' starting running back.
Enter Adrian Peterson into the conversation as Arizona has been discussed at length as a possible landing spot for the All-Pro running back.
Peterson's future with the Minnesota Vikings is still in doubt leading to some speculation that he could be headed to the desert.
