There's been an expectation since January that the Cardinals would release running back Adrian Peterson as they start working on their 2018 roster and it seems that the day for that move has arrived.

After just six games with his new team during the 2017 National Football League season, the Arizona Cardinals are expected to release the all-pro running back, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

He was acquired from the New Orleans Saints in October after David Johnson was placed on injured reserve with a broken wrist he suffered in Week 1.

After being traded to the Cardinals last season from the Saints, Peterson ran 129 times for 448 yards and two touchdown in six games. He missed the last two games. He also had nine receptions for 66 yards.
