Schefter didn’t want to miss the call.
Earlier today, ESPN’s Dianna Russini broke the news that Adrian Peterson had been traded from the New Orleans Saints to the Arizona Cardinals.
To make room for Peterson, the Cardinals cut running back Chris Johnson.
But how did that news break?
Well, if you were watching NFL Live, you would have seen Adam Schefter taking a call mid-segment and then breaking the news.

This isn’t the first time Schefter has interrupted a live broadcast in order to take a call. It surely won’t be the last either, as a man in Schefter’s position, if you don’t answer the phone, that information could be leaked to a different journalist.
