He’s back: The #Redskins are signing former Pro Bowl RB Adrian Peterson, source tells me and @MikeGarafolo. Immediate help in the wake of a string of injuries at the position. 🔏

#Redskins are signing RB Adrian Peterson, sources tell me and @RapSheet. Peterson embarks on his 12th NFL season with his fourth team. Needs 37 rushing yards to pass Jim Brown and crack the top 10 all time. Can do it quickly in Washington.

Re: Redskins Signing Adrian Peterson

I would have rather had Darkwa. Wonder what the decision process was.

Per Field Yates:

@FieldYates
Adrian Peterson's optimal role is when he can handle early down (non-passing situations) work, chew up carries and use his power/agility to wear a defense down. Washington presents exactly that.

Also, apparently AP was interested in playing with the Redskins, and it looks like he wasn't the team's first phone call (I think Darkwa visited first).

Ok but Charles was with Alex Smith at KC. Seems a tenous thread to me.

I read somewhere Darkwa wanted to be the RB1 wherever he goes and the team wouldn't assure him of it.

He has never said that . He didn't do that in NY,something seems wrong here.

It's a 1-year deal and we only have two healthy RBs (Kelly and Bibbs). Also, there are a lot of jobs on the line, so this doesn't surprise me, nor does it seem too crazy.

I get all that but he is 33 years old. He is not going to fit in with what we have going on here. He's going to want the ball 20 plus times like he did in New Orleans. I find it hard to believe that this wasn't done to try and sell tickets. Garbage ass Vinny Cerrato type of signing.
