preseason opener on August 9.

The 10-season Vikings veteran played for the New Orleans Saints and Arizona Cardinals last season. "I'm down for working out or whatever I have to do to make the team", Peterson told ESPN's Josina Anderson on Sunday night.


His best seasons came with the Vikings, but Peterson hasn't delivered top flight results since 2015. This website is not intended for users located within the European Economic Area. As a member of the Cardinals, he rushed 3.5 yards per carry, seeing action in six games in which he totaled 448 rushing yards.

Orleans Darkwa and Jamaal Charles have also been linked to the Redskins as they try to sure up their backfield. Peterson embarks on his 12th National Football League season with his fourth team.

Perine and Marshall could be back prior to the start of the season, and Gruden has said that - at least for now - Rob Kelley is Washington's starting running back.

"We've had very [unlucky] situations with our running backs", Gruden explained. Rookie Derrius Guice was lost for the season because of an ACL injury.


Signing with the Redskins though will likely depend on what sort of role the former Minnesota running back has in mind for himself. That's where Peterson comes in, though we'll have to see how much he has left in the tank.

The Redskins, though, were unhappy with their 28th-ranked rushing attack last season.

The 33-year-old, who was the 2012 NFL MVP, sits second among active rushers in yards and attempts, behind Frank Gore.
