Happy Tuesday, Sooner fans!

Great news from the NFL today: Adrian Peterson has signed a two-year, $7 million deal to play for the New Orleans Saints. Already a Hall of Fame lock and one of the best Sooners of all time, AD will look to extend his career after a Minnesota comeback that ended with injury and ineffectiveness.

Why am I so particularly happy about this? Mostly because Peterson could have gone to the Patriots instead, which would have been horribly conflicting for me.

OU links:

  • OU continued hemorrhaging recruits last night when 2019 wide receiver Theo Wease decommitted from the Sooners just one day after Arjei Henderson did the same. Wease’s decision is disappointing but not surprising, and the Sooners still have a shot with the Allen standout in the long run. Hopefully, that’s the last in Oklahoma’s recent spate of defections.
  • Charles Walker’s senior-year struggles may have been deeper than anyone knew. According to NFL.com, Walker has been battling depression for years and that fight may have contributed to his problems last season. But Walker’s doctor says his depression is in “full remission” now, news that might encourage an NFL team to give him a shot. It’s great Walker is feeling better, and I wish him luck!
  • C&C Machine editor Jack Shields wrote this morning about P.J. Mbanasor’s transfer to Louisville and how OKC defensive end Ron Tatum will be committing tomorrow. PLEASE RON WE NEED THIS It would be great to see him in the crimson and cream!
  • I went on Mark Rogers TV on Sunday to talk about Parnell Motley, Kyler Murray and Cam Rising.
  • A new Oklahoma law allows universities to sue boosters who expose schools to NCAA sanctions. Better watch it, T. Boone.
  • Joe Mixon might be the best running back prospect in this draft class and no one knows how to feel about it.
  • Four-star Fresno safety Steve Stephens is announcing on Sunday and Oklahoma is squarely in the mix.
