The Redskins have signed RB Adrian Peterson. AP is a future Hall-of-Famer, but his name is much bigger than his game at this point. He averaged just 3.4 yards per carry on 156 attempts between the Saints and Cardinals last year. His 2.3 yards after contact per attempt ranked 49th among 78 qualifying RBs, per Pro Football Focus. He finished 46th among 47 RBs in Football Outsiders' DVOA. The good news for Peterson is that his competition for early-down work in Washington is Rob Kelley and his career 3.9 yards per carry and Samaje Perine, who's sidelined with a sprained ankle. We'd still consider Kelley the favorite for the job right now, but Peterson will be worth monitoring closely over the next few weeks.
RB Adrian Peterson is re-signing with the Redskins on a 2-year deal. The future Hall-of-Famer exceeded expectations (as usual) last year, pumping out his 8th 1,000-yard campaign on a decent 4.2 yards per carry. Ideally for Washington, Peterson will be a lightly used backup behind Derrius Guice in 2019.
Update: Peterson's deal is for $8 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We're curious to see more details on the contract, but this initial reports makes it look like the 'Skins envision a significant role for AP. Perhaps there's concern about Guice's rehab from last year's torn ACL, which has required multiple surgeries.

As expected, Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Panthers and Chris Thompson (ribs) is inactive. Kapri Bibbs will step in as Washington’s #2 RB, but Peterson should handle as many touches as he can handle.
Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) is expected to play against the Panthers today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. With RB Chris Thompson and Jamison Crowder likely to be sidelined, Peterson should play a big ball-carrying role and an expanded passing-game role. He's a nice RB2 for Week 6.
Redskins RBs Adrian Peterson (ankle) and Chris Thompson (ribs) are listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Panthers. It sounds like both guys will play, but we'll find out for sure by noon ET on Sunday. RB Kapri Bibbs is next in line if 1 or both of these guys can't go.
