Adrian Peterson, Jamaal Charles in play to fill Redskins RB void post-Derrius Guice injury

Post by Cliff » Sun Aug 19, 2018 2:22 pm

One thing is clear from the first two weeks of the preseason: if the Washington Redskins want to contend in the NFC East, and the NFC as a whole, they have to improve their rushing attack. The Redskins lost rookie running back Derrius Guice for the season with a torn ACL on just his third carry of the preseason, opening up the carry competition to Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley.

Perine already got hurt and neither he nor Kelley have looked impressive. Enter Adrian Peterson (preferably riding in on a horse, holding a lighting bolt while "Thunderstruck" loudly plays) and Jamaal Charles (preferably flying on a hovercraft with Steely Dan jams in the background), two big-name veteran backs with interesting appeal.

And you know what? This could be a good fit. Wait, wait, wait. Please stop scrolling down to the comments to complain about how Peterson is old and got traded from the Saints only to see their offense explode. We all know that.

According to Ian Rapoport, the Redskins are signing AD. Via Twitter:

He’s back: The #Redskins are signing former Pro Bowl RB Adrian Peterson, source tells me and @MikeGarafolo. Immediate help in the wake of a string of injuries at the position.

Peterson can still be useful at 33 but they better have more options by mid-season.

They have at least a couple more options on the roster, assuming Samaje Perine 's injury isn't severe.
