Redskins Announce Signing of RB Adrian Peterson with Two-Year Deal

The deal for the Redskins and running back Adrian Peterson is official, as today the team announced they inked the running back to a new two-year deal.

Last season Peterson ran for 1042 yards in 16 games, a 4.2 yards per carry average with seven touchdowns.

He became the first Redskins running back to rush for 1,000 or more yards in a season since Alfred Morris rushed for 1,074 yards following the 2014 campaign.

The 13-year NFL vet entered the league after being selected in the first round (No. 7 overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings.

He spent 10 seasons with the Vikings from 2007-16. In 2017, he played for the Arizona Cardinals after opening the regular season with the New Orleans Saints.

    We sign LANDON COLLINS and lose a third round comp pick in 2020
    We have a fourth for losing JAMISON CROWDER
    We lose a sixth for inking ERECK FLOWERS
    A lost seventh for DOMINIQUE RODGERS-CROMARTIE
    Losing MAURICE HARRIS doesn’t give us a comp pick.
    Signing ADRIAN PETERSON did not affect the comp picture for 2020.
    WR BRIAN QUICK minimum deal.
    OG KERIN minimum deal.
    In the draft, the REDSKINS could:
    1 – draft an ILB and cut MASON FOSTER saving 4.65 against the cap.
    2 – draft a TE and cut VERNON DAVIS saving 5 against the cap.
    Trade JORDAN REED for a third round pick.
    Drsft a low round secondary TE unless the practice squad has one.
    MANASSA GARNER, MATT FLANAGAN, ELIJAH WELLMAN, and T.HOLTZ are available.
