Redskins' running back options: Two legends, one ex-Giant

Former Saints RB Adrian Peterson to meet with WAS

On the other side of the equation, Washington appears to be Peterson's only option, at least without a significant injury to a running back elsewhere before Week 1.

A source told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Peterson agreed to a one-year deal for the veterans minimum of $1.015 million.

According to multiple reports, the Redskins are signing Adrian Peterson.

Muslims believe that it was on the Day of Arafat that Prophet Muhammad delivered his final sermon at Mount Arafat . The Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam which every able-bodied Muslim with the means must fulfil once.

Running back Adrian Peterson is set to join the Redskins. They lost rookie Derrius Guice to a season-ending torn ACL in the preseason opener. Samaje Perine just went down with an ankle injury, and Byron Marhsall is out with the same. Head coach Jay Gruden said Rob Kelley remains the starting running back as the team still has confidence in his abilities.

Peterson struggled last season, rushing for only 529 yards on 156 carries during stints with the New Orleans Saints and Arizona Cardinals. They open the 2018 season against the Arizona Cardinals on September 9. Jamaal Charles and Orleans Darkwa also visited the Redskins the past two days after several injuries at the position, with the team opting to sign Peterson and De'Veon Smith.

Washington added Peterson as their running back group took a number of hits this preseason. Washington also wants to limit snaps for Thompson, who has a lengthy injury history and is coming off a broken leg suffered last season. He is a seven-time Pro Bowl RB and four-time All-Pro. "There were a few years where he was the bulk of the offense, run game and pass game".

I repeat: "I want him to work the way he is doing and play the way he is doing and that's the only thing that matters". We want him to stay, he wants to stay, so when a player is not on the market, the value is zero, ' said Mourinho .

Peterson is the Vikings' all-time leader in career rushing yards (11,747), career rushing attempts (2,418), and career rushing touchdowns (97).

The Redskins open the regular season September 9 at Arizona. Peterson is tied for ninth in National Football League history with 99 rushing touchdowns, one behind Faulk and Shaun Alexander.

"I don't understand the stigma when people get 31, 32, 33 - they somehow just slow down", Williams said Sunday, via the Washington Times.
