Adrian Peterson To Meet With Washington

Adrian Peterson to visit Washington Redskins as team seeks running back depth

The team hosted Peterson for a workout earlier in the day. "I'm down for working out or whatever I have to do to make the team", Peterson told ESPN's Josina Anderson.

National Football League contracts are not guaranteed until September 1, so there is no risk in signing Peterson to a contract. And with Samaje Perine and Byron Marshall recovering from ankle injuries and Chris Thompson still on the mend after breaking his fibula, the 33-year-old Peterson may be a viable option for Washington.

Perine and Marshall could be back prior to the start of the season, and Gruden has said that - at least for now - Rob Kelley is Washington's starting running back.

Peterson, who was the seventh pick in the 2007 draft by the Vikings and played for Minnesota through 2016, spent last season with New Orleans and Arizona.

Rossi also won for Andretti Autosport on the streets of Long Beach in April and the Mid-Ohio road course three weeks ago. Wickens had reeled off five straight top-five finishes and is sixth in the standings.

Peterson was the third running back to work out for the Redskins after Orleans Darkwa and Jamaal Charles reportedly visited the facility on Sunday. "We've had very unlucky situations with our running backs". Washington also wants to limit snaps for Thompson, who has a lengthy injury history and is coming off a broken leg suffered last season.

Washington added Peterson as their running back group took a number of hits this preseason. But he complained publicly about his role right away, and was traded to the Arizona Cardinals after averaging three yards per carry over four games. He had two games in which he ran for 134 yards and 159 yards, respectively.

The team announced the signing Monday after meeting with Peterson, a four-time All-Pro running back. After rushing for 1,485 yards and 11 touchdowns for the Vikings in 2015, Peterson has gained 601 yards and two touchdowns on the ground in 13 games over the past two seasons. Peterson tore his ACL in 2011 but miraculously returned nine months later to rush for 2,097 yards and win the NFL MVP award.
