Adrian Peterson cut
 
@JPFinlayNBCS

Can confirm Washington cut Adrian Peterson. Pretty shocking news, though he did miss practice on Thursday. Clearly the team likes Antonio Gibson, a lot.

WTF WFT!? That seems like a terrible idea. He was a lot of our offense last year and provided an important veteran presence.

Wow I'm surprised.

I think this staff wants versatility out of their runners, they need to be dual threats as receivers.

Still I would have thought Peterson would have found a role.

Man...this came out of nowhere.

Gibson would have went way up my draft boards if I knew this was coming

This offense has to be the youngest in the league by far..

Great move by the staff. No reason to have a slow 35 year old RB who isn't a threat to catch the ball. Also AP was a Callahan guy, he wasn't even a Gruden guy.

Yep. Growing pains are coming, but they are going about it the right way.

Turner wants his guys to be able to catch the ball out the backfield. AP isnít a bad pass catcher, but heís not a natural.

Even with him this team was going to struggle to score so it's not a huge loss

Wow what a big surprise! I guess this means Love impressed the coaches. Shit, my FFL will do draft tonight and Sunday, I bet Gibson is moving up higher on my friends' list... Although I might draft Love later in the late rounds.

Makes sense when you factor in his age and skill set for this offense, still surprising news to wake up to. Saw this on Twitter lol:

Jay Gruden: deactivates Adrian Peterson Week 1 2019

Ron Rivera: hold my beer

If we were gonna do this, I would have expected us to make a run at Fournette. I guess they must love what they see outta Gibson and Love and company.

Fournette doesn't fit the style of back that they obviously want.

This team is going to struggle with short yardage plays.
If you are going with a youth movement, please get something for Ryan Kerrigan while you can.
