Adrian Peterson To Meet With Washington

Peterson ranks 12th on the NFL's all-time rushing list with 12,276 yards and is just 37 yards shy of passing Cleveland Browns Hall of Famer Jim Brown.

But that was then.

"We've had very [unlucky] situations with our running backs", Gruden explained.

After training with the 33-year-old this summer, though, Redskins Pro Bowl tackle Trent Williams insists Peterson "hasn't slowed down a step".

If he's healthy and ready to go, Peterson could be a tremendous steal for the Redskins.

Rookie second-round pick Derrius Guice is out for the season with a torn ACL suffered in the team's first preseason game.

He's joined by Samaje Perine (3.4 ypc last season) and Rob Kelly (3.1 ypc).

Washington is eyeing a veteran running back after injuries already began piling up in the Redskins backfield.

It's too late for that, Mourinho has already been given a contract extension - back him until the end. "The week leading up was good and I expected the team collectively to be better".

Signing with the Redskins though will likely depend on what sort of role the former Minnesota running back has in mind for himself.

"But if he's coming in here and they sign him, he's coming in to help". He had just 81 yards in four games with the Saints before being traded to Arizona in October.

But in Arizona, Peterson showed signs he could still be explosive. "There were a few years where he was the bulk of the offense, run game and pass game".

The change of scenery was just what Peterson needed, as he rushed for over 130 yards in two of his first three games with the Cardinals.

Washington opens the regular season on the road against Peterson's former team, the Cardinals, on September 9. That's why the organization drafted Guice and was pleased with Kelley returning in better shape.

A source told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Peterson agreed to a one-year deal for the veterans minimum of $1.015 million. He ranks 12th in National Football League history with 12,276 rushing yards, though he has not reached 1,000 yards in a season since 2015.

With the Vikings, Peterson rushed for more than 1,000 yards in seven of his 10 seasons - a mark he last accomplished in 2015.
