Peterson signs with Washington

Peterson signs with Washington

After putting the four-time All-Pro through a tryout on Monday, the Washington Redskins have signed Peterson, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported, via a source informed of the situation.

The Redskins certainly are in need of some help after second-round pick Derrius Guice tore his ACL during Week 1 of the preseason, sidelining him for the entire 2018 campaign.

After spending time with the New Orleans Saints, Peterson was traded to the Cardinals on October 10 for a sixth-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

He would only have one other game over the century mark, however, as he failed to record more than 80 yards in four out of his six appearances with the team. The Cardinals released the 33-year-old in March and he was cleared from a neck injury in the spring.

Peterson spent 10 seasons in Minnesota before splitting time in New Orleans and Arizona during 2017.


He was later waived by Arizona.

Washington added Peterson as their running back group took a number of hits this preseason. Peterson embarks on his 12th National Football League season with his fourth team.

The change of scenery was just what Peterson needed, as he rushed for over 130 yards in two of his first three games with the Cardinals. After that, Samaje Perine and Byron Marshall have been banged up as well. "If something else happens, we are going be really, really, really thin".

It remains to be seen whether Peterson will make the Redskins' final 53-man roster. Making that accomplishment even more impressive, Peterson was coming off a torn ACL, an injury that was then regarded as career altering. The 2012 MVP is 12th all-time in rushing with 12,276 yards and needs 37 to pass Jim Brown. He underwent surgery in May to remove a stabilizing plate in his leg.
