NFL Notebook: Adrian Peterson signs with Redskins

Running back Adrian Peterson, with the Cardinals last season will visit with the Redskins on Monday

- Running back Adrian Peterson has signed with the Washington Redskins, the team announced Monday afternoon.

Despite only rushing for 601 yards and appearing in just 13 games over the last two seasons, Peterson clearly thinks he can still be a valuable asset to some team in the league this year.

Since 2013, Peterson has had just one season with over 500 yards rushing (1,485 in 2015), but he showed some burst last season with the Cardinals.

Following the season-ending injury of rookie running back Derrius Guice, the Washington Redskins were expected to bring in a free agent running back to help bolster their backfield. He received a one-year deal, according to multiple reports. The Cardinals released him following the season.

Charles was a two-time first-team All-Pro selection in nine seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, but he played sparingly last season with the Denver Broncos.

Thriller's numbers were updated past year with the album certified 33x platinum. In 1994, they reunited with original band members Don Henley and Glenn Frey.

"I'm excited", Peterson said in a statement. The former Minnesota running back is also in, "very good shape", right now according to Garafolo. Although he was used sparingly, he put together 296 rushing yards on 69 carries and 1 touchdown (a 4.3 yards/carry average). If something else happens, we'll be really, really, really thin.

"I don't understand the stigma when people get 31, 32, 33 - they somehow just slow down", Williams said Sunday, via the Washington Times. The injuries to Perine, Marshall and Carter create a potential opening for Peterson, who figures to contribute most on early downs and in goal-line work.

Peterson, who was suspended in 2014 after he was charged with child abuse, ranks No. 12 on the NFL's all-time rushing list with 12,276 yards.

Roughly two hours before news of Peterson's imminent signing broke, Guice tweeted a photo from a Florida hospital, where he's set to undergo knee surgery.
