Well, when your mind's made up, there's no point trying to change it.

And Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson says when Pro Bowl offensive tackle Trent Williams' mind is set about his future, that's it.

Peterson told ESPN's Josina Anderson once Williams has his mind decided about his future with the Washington organization there's no changing it.

"He's the best & most athletic LT in the game, and I wouldn't be surprised if he comes back, & I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't," Peterson said, via Anderson.

The veteran back also said Williams' absence has impacted the entire offense, from the development of rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins to the amount of help the running backs and tight ends must give to the mediocre offensive line.

Williams, the wantaway left tacklehas been absent from the Redskins offseason since June. Reports indicated several other NFL teams have called the Redskins about making a deal for Williams, but Washington has rebuffed all inquiries.
