Redskins To Host Veteran Running Back Adrian Peterson

Share

The Redskins on Monday signed the veteran running back for what will be his 12th National Football League season.

After playing 10 seasons in Minnesota, Peterson signed with the New Orleans Saints before the 2017 season and played in four games, rushing 27 times for 81 yards, before being traded to Arizona. As a receiver, Peterson caught 11 passes for 70 yards combined last season.

Rookie second-round pick Derrius Guice is out for the season with a torn ACL suffered in the team's first preseason game. He received a one-year deal, according to multiple reports. During his senior year, Trent Williams, a freshman at the time, blocked for him as a right tackle for half of the season in which Peterson averaged 5.4 yards per carry.

Charles was a two-time first-team All-Pro selection in nine seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, but he played sparingly last season with the Denver Broncos.

The Washington Redskins have turned their attention to a pair of available running backs with serious legacies to their name as they hope to shore up a thin corps at running back.

The organization also hosted former Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles and former New York Giants running back Orleans Darkwa for workouts but didn't sign either player. That necessitated signing Peterson and Smith, though coach Jay Gruden gave Kelley a vote of confidence on Sunday. "We've had very unlucky situations with our running backs".

"We want to get physicals on them just in case", Gruden said.

Peterson has amassed 12,276 rushing yards in his career and rushed for a career-high 2,097 during his MVP season in 2012.

With an injury to David Johnson hitting Arizona in Week 1 of previous year, Peterson looked like he could still carry the load right away in 2017.
