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.

Re: Adrian Peterson cut

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

Re: Adrian Peterson cut

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.

Re: Adrian Peterson cut

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

Re: Adrian Peterson cut

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

Re: Adrian Peterson cut

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.

Re: Adrian Peterson cut

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.

Re: Adrian Peterson cut

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

Re: Adrian Peterson cut

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.

Re: Adrian Peterson cut

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

Re: Adrian Peterson cut

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.

Shameless self-promotion. It is what it is.

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

Re: Adrian Peterson cut

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.
