Adrian Peterson: Will meet with Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson will meet with the Redskins on Monday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Peterson, who was released by the Cardinals in March, has expressed interest in finding a new team since being cleared from a neck injury this spring. The 33-year-old certainly doesn't possess the same burst that earned him an MVP award in 2012, but he could boost an injury-ridden crew of running backs in Washington. Aside from rookie Derrius Guice's torn ACL -- Chris Thompson (leg), Semaje Perine (ankle), and Byron Marshall (ankle) are all dealing with injuries -- leaving Rob Kelley and Kapri Bibbs as the only RBs at full health in Washington's backfield.

Adrian Peterson: Hoping to find a team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (neck) has been cleared by multiple doctors and intends to continue his NFL career, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

Peterson was cleared by at least one doctor before the Cardinals released him March 13, and he's been posting workout videos on his twitter account since early May. He shouldn't have too much trouble finding an opportunity to compete for a committee role, though he may need to accept a contract for the veteran's minimum or not much more. Peterson celebrated his 33th birthday in March, following a 2017 season in which he took 156 carries for 529 yards (3.4 average) and two touchdowns, with most of that production occurring after he was traded from New Orleans to Arizona on Oct. 10.

Adrian Peterson: Says he's healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (neck), who will be released by the Cardinals on Monday, said he received a clean bill of health and intends to continue his career, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

Peterson missed all of December due to a neck injury, finishing with 129 carries for 448 yards (3.5 average), two touchdowns and three fumbles (two lost) in six games for the Cardinals. He'll turn 33 next week and may have to settle for a committee role, having played more than 10 games in a season just once since 2013. Peterson likely will look for a new home, as David Johnson (hand) figures to gobble up the vast majority of backfield snaps in Arizona.

Cardinals' Adrian Peterson: Cut by Cards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals are releasing Peterson (neck) on Monday, but they might consider re-signing him on a smaller contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The expectation all along was that Peterson would be released before Friday, at which point he would've received a $750,000 roster bonus. He'll turn 33 on March 21 and is coming off a season in which he had only 3.4 yards per carry and two touchdowns in 10 games before landing on injured reserve with a neck injury. Peterson had outings of 134 and 159 rushing yards in his first three weeks after the trade from New Orleans to Arizona, but he also finished under 30 yards three times and lost a pair of fumbles in his six games with the Cardinals. He'd merely be a backup if he re-signed in the desert, as David Johnson (wrist) was cleared for all activities in early February. Peterson presumably will search for a team that gives him a better shot at a meaningful role.

Cardinals' Adrian Peterson: Likely on way out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals are expected to release Peterson (neck) in the offseason, Mike Jurecki of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports.

After a spectacular 10-year stint with the Vikings to begin his career, Peterson was allowed to explore the open market and eventually landed a deal with the Saints in late April. Once the regular season commenced, Peterson seemingly was a victim of too many mouths to feed, earning 27 carries combined in the first four games of the season. On the heels of a Week 5 bye, the Saints sent him to the RB-needy Cardinals, who lost 2016 All-Pro David Johnson (wrist) in Week 1. Finally back in a leading role, Peterson averaged 23 touches per outing over the next six games before sustaining a season-ending injury of his own. In an offseason in which Peterson turns 33 years old, Arizona's decision likely will come down to cap concerns. Peterson's salary is accompanied by a $3.5 million hit in 2018, and the presence of a healthy Johnson may render the veteran redundant.
