  • Peterson agreed Wednesday to re-sign with the Redskins on a two-year, $8 million contract, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. Peterson was a 16-game starter his first season in Washington, producing 4.2 yards per carry and eight total touchdowns even as the rest of the team's offense collapsed amidst an onslaught of injuries. His role for 2019 largely depends on the health of 2018 second-round pick Derrius Guice, who seems to be making good progress after dealing with some early setbacks in his recovery from the ACL tear he suffered in the preseason. The Redskins ideally would like to use Peterson in a complementary role during his age-34 season, but they know he'll be up to the task if Guice isn't ready to lead the way. With Chris Thompson being a fixture on passing downs, the Washington backfield appears awfully crowded.

  • Peterson is going back and forth with the Redskins to work out terms for a new contract, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington (per Julie Donaldson) reports. It's no surprise to see both parties interested in a reunion, though there was some thought Peterson would prefer to switch teams now that Derrius Guice (torn ACL) seems to be making good progress in his rehab. The Redskins still hope the second-round pick will be ready for the lead role by Week 1, but that doesn't mean they'll skimp on an insurance plan. Peterson will turn 34 in March and is coming off a 2018 campaign in which he took 251 carries for 1,042 yards (4.2 average) and seven touchdowns while starting all 16 games for an injury-ravaged team. Given their major issues at quarterback, the Redskins likely envision a 2019 offense that relies on a three-headed backfield featuring Guice, Peterson and pass-catching specialist Chris Thompson. The team still has more than a month to work out a contract before Peterson can become an unrestricted free agent.

  • Peterson netted zero yards on four rushes in the Redskins' 24-0 loss to the Eagles on Sunday. Peterson's forgettable outing Sunday shouldn't detract from what was a remarkable comeback campaign, one in which the multi-time Pro Bowler amassed 1,046 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground, supplementing those numbers with a 20-208-1 line through the air. His success this season notwithstanding, it remains to be seen whether there's another clear-cut lead-back job the likes of which he found in Washington for Peterson in 2019. The 11-year veteran will be 34 in March, but at minimum, he certainly proved his ability to at least serve in a complementary capacity with his play this past season.

  • Redskins' Adrian Peterson: Elevates to full practice
    By RotoWire Staff

    Peterson (shoulder) was listed as a full participant at Thursday's practice. More often than not, Peterson has rid himself of a designation by week's end since dislocating his shoulder Week 5 in New Orleans. He did just that on his second opportunity to do so during preparations for the season finale. In his previous matchup Week 13 with the Eagles, he ripped off a 90-yard touchdown run but otherwise managed just one yard per carry on his other eight rushes.

  • Peterson (shoulder) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Les Carpenter of The Washington Post reports. In last week's loss to the Titans, Peterson clinched the eighth 1,000-yard rushing season of his career, the first time he's reached that benchmark since 2015. The production is rendered more impressive considering that Peterson has been playing through a dislocated shoulder along with the fact that the Redskins have had a patchwork offensive line for a good portion of the season. While the shoulder issue regularly impacts his practice reps, expect Peterson to ditch the injury designation by week's end, as he's regularly done for a couple months now. He'll ready himself for a rematch this weekend with an Eagles defense that allowed him to run for a career-long 90-yard touchdown dash back in Week 13.
