Former Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson to visit Redskins

Former Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson to visit Redskins

Washington could reap the benefits of a veteran player being overlooked because of age and injury history.

The former Vikings running back has been contacted by the Washington Redskins and will be brought in Monday for a visit, according to John Keim of ESPN.

LSU's Derrius Guice, who was drafted in the 2nd round, was definitely high on the list to be the starter, but he would tear his ACL in the preseason opener.

The future Hall of Fame running back can also be the ideal example setter for Guice and show him how to work hard during his comeback from an injury he sustained as well.

The details of Peterson's contract with Washington have yet to be released. If he's at his best he gives the Redskins a homerun threat to pair with Chris Thompson, Robert Kelley, Samaje Perine and perhaps Kapri Bibbs.

The ministry estimates there are now about 600,000 to 700,000 South Koreans with immediate or extended relatives in North Korea. But Seoul has failed to persuade Pyongyang to accept its long-standing call for more frequent reunions with more participants.

As it stands, Peterson will be that guy, and will have two preseason games to acclimate himself. "If something else happens, we are going be really, really, really thin".

This is the same Peterson who averaged three yards per carry in New Orleans before joining the Cardinals mid-season and averaging ... "I've seen guys come through that door and guys go through this process".

Running back Adrian Peterson is set to join the Redskins.

Peterson was placed on injured reserve for the remainder of the season after suffering a neck injury against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 12. He also earned the Most Valuable Player and Offensive Player of the Year honors in 2012 after rushing for 2,097 yards and 12 touchdowns. After rushing for 1,485 yards and 11 touchdowns for the Vikings in 2015, Peterson has gained 601 yards and two touchdowns on the ground in 13 games over the past two seasons. He didn't.
