Redskins’ Trent Williams Says Adrian Peterson ‘hasn’t slowed down a step’

With veteran running back, and future Hall of Famer, Adrian Peterson in town for a free agent visit, the Washington Redskins are hoping that Peterson can be the back that can handle lead back duties this offseason, and capture some of the form of his earlier days.

Redskins’ offensive linemen Trent Williams believes that Peterson has plenty of gas left in the tank, and hasn’t lost a step as he has aged and put more mileage on his body during his legendary NFL career.

“I don’t understand the stigma when people get 31, 32, 33 — they somehow just slow down?” Williams said, according to Matthew Paras of The Washington Times.

“You don’t. That’s a gifted athlete, you know? He has a gift. Did Darrell Green ever lose his speed? He didn’t. Some things are just always with you. It’s you, it’s your makeup, it’s your DNA. … So, no, he’s the same athlete that you’re used to seeing.

As far as Williams can see, Peterson is still the same dangerous threat he has always been.

“He hasn’t slowed down a step.”

If all goes well during his visit in Washington, Peterson can prove it on the field for the Redskins this upcoming season.

Charlton, 24, has battled injuries during his career, and has been hit with the injury bug this past offseason.

Had the Saints opted to place Brees on the IR, he would have been shelved for at least 8 weeks.

The Saints could see Brees return following their bye week, and will now turn to Teddy Bridgewater as their signal caller until he does return.
