Running back Adrian Peterson said he would love to stay with the Redskins beyond this season.

"I would love to come back here and finish off on a better note," Peterson told the media Thursday. "We have a great group of guys here -- all the adversity we've faced this year and how guys have responded. To come to work and really stay focused shows a lot about this team, this locker room, coaches as well."

Peterson, who cracked 1,000 yards rushing for the Redskins on the season, said he has plenty left in the tank.

"If you watch football, if you know anything about football, then you know that he's still got a lot left," Peterson said of himself. "If you can't see that, you're blind."

Peterson, who turns 34 in March, could also help mentor Redskins running back Derrius Guice who missed the season recovering from a torn ACL.

"I like him a lot; he's got a nice personality," Peterson said of Guice. "I haven't been able to see him work and his work ethic and how he handled his business. But we talked about getting him down to Houston, so hopefully he comes down and I'm able to see what he's all about when it comes to putting in work. Show him a couple things."

"I wanted to help lead a team to a championship and get into the playoffs," Peterson said. "That's the ultimate goal, so, fell short of that."
