Hypothetical GM'n: Herschall Walker trade in reverse/AP's worth it or no?


There was an article recently proposing that the Vikings should trade AP instead of letting his prime years waste away on a team that may not be ready to contend until he's 30 or 31. Don't forget, he's in the same division as DET, GB, and CHI. So it may take even longer if Cutler re-signs. Point of emphasis, Adrian Peterson is a once in a generation calibur back. Though the value of the running back is continuously dying, you likely won't get one like him for another 15 or 20 years. I can't count how many times I've been on this site, and someone has said, "Well it's not like Peyton Manning needs an Adrian Peterson kind of running back". I get it. Manning can get it done without a dynamic running game, just needs 1 that keeps the defense honest. But if it were possible, what do you figure would be the offer from Elway? I would say 3, maybe 4 first rounders, 2 second rounders(we do better at the backend of drafts anyway), and DRC so they could have him and Xavier Rhodes on the same team similar to the Legion of Boom(sherman and the previous bronco browner). Both the kids out the backfield(keep Kno, and CJ), and Tamme. Now keep in mind, it would be a contender that would have to get him. No team rebuilding would try because they would need their draft picks to well, re-build. It would have to be a team that had plenty of talent, and could afford to give away a draft or 2 to get him for what's left of his prime years. That bottle necks it to teams that would need a running game improvement, has enough talent to shed a few pieces, and has pretty good cap space. I summed it up to NE, DEN, NO, CIN, GB, and ATL(on the bubble). Dark horses BUF, SF, and ARI. Everybody else got a pretty good running situations, or are rebuilding. Then I looked at the back end of AP's contract(over 15 mil in 2017) and I personally said Helllllz Naw. I'll go win SB's without him if I were Denver. What do ya'll think? Would it be worth it? John Elway is a wizard in The Market/Free Agency. And if yes, what would you give?
