Former Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson to visit Redskins

He is a seven-time Pro Bowl RB and four-time All-Pro.

The team announced the deal Monday after meeting with Peterson.

Adrian Peterson will meet with Washington as he remains a free agent.

Washington needed help at running back after Derrius Guice, the team's second-round draft pick, tore his ACL in the preseason opener against New England last week (Guice underwent surgery on Monday to fix the ligament) and was lost for the season. The Cardinals released him following the season.

Last week in the Redskins' second preseason game against the New York Jets, Samaje Perine (ankle) and Byron Marshall (lower leg injury) were lost early in the contest.

Jamaal Charles also met with Washington.

The Redskins, who worked out Orleans Darkwa on Sunday as well, have been hit with several injuries at running back. He ranks 12th in National Football League history with 12,276 rushing yards, though he has not reached 1,000 yards in a season since 2015.

Peterson, 33, isn't guaranteed to be the starter, as head coach Jay Gruden confirmed to ESPN.com that Rob Kelley would see the bulk of the carries. "We've had very unlucky situations with our running backs".

But Peterson's season ended after he suffered a season-ending neck injury in November.

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. Peterson, perhaps the greatest running back of his generation, had a mini-resurgence in Arizona - where he started six games and rushed for 448 yards. They open the 2018 season against the Arizona Cardinals on September 9.
