Redskins Hosting Adrian Peterson

Published

on

The Washington Redskins are scheduled to host free agent running back Adrian Peterson for a visit on Monday, according to NFL Network insiders Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafalo.

Peterson started last season playing for the New Orleans Saints before being traded to the Arizona Cardinals.

The Redskins are in dire need of depth in their running back room as they recently lost rookie running back Derrius Guice to a torn ACL, and will be without both Samaje Perine, who is out with an ankle injury, and Byron Marshall who is also dealing with ankle injuries.

Washington drafted Guice with the hopes that he could take on the workload of a lead back, and with no proven lead back waiting in wings, in the wake of his season ending injury, it makes sense that they would explore the free agent market.

While Peterson wasn’t the productive monster he had been throughout his career during his time with New Orleans and Arizona, he did show flashes of his former self when he received more opportunities with the Cardinals, who were compensating for the loss of their lead back, David Johnson.

Washington only has Rob Kelley, Chris Thompson, and Kapri Bibbs healthy at the moment, after waiving injured running back Martez Carter on Sunday in a move that could be seen as a precursor to the signing of Peterson, should his visit go well.

Baldwin posted the following on Twitter:

Baldwin sent out a number of tweets eluding to the end of his career and although he never used the word “retirement”, it is clear that he is stepping away from football.
