Adrian Peterson revitalized his NFL career in Washington.

After racking up 1,250 combined yards and eight touchdowns in 2018, the soon-to-be 34-year-old running back is coming back to the Redskins on a two-year, $8 million deal, Craig Hoffman confirms.

Peterson should serve a major role in the tutelage young back Derrius Guice, last year's second-round pick, who missed his entire rookie season after tearing his ACL in his preseason debut.

The second year of Peterson's deal is an option, Hoffman reports.

The Redskins have all but confirmed the deal.
