Redskins 'still talking' to Adrian Peterson about a new deal

Adrian Peterson was one of the few bright spots from the Redskins' 2018 season. The future Hall of Famer joined the team in the middle of training camp after Derrius Guice was ruled out for the season with a torn ACL, and went on to rush for over 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns. 

Peterson has said he'd be interested in re-signing with Washington, but is likely looking for a pay raise over the one-year, $1 million deal he signed with the Redskins last August. 

According to ESPN's John Keim, the Redskins are actively negotiating with Peterson's camp, but the two sides have yet to strike a deal. And the Redskins could now be facing competition for the 33-year old's signature.


"They're still talking to him, but obviously it's not done," Keim told The Sports Junkies Wednesday. "And I think there may be another team jumping in there with him, I don't know to what extent."

Per Mike Garafolo, the Bears could be a "potential" landing spot for Peterson outside of Washington.

Guice should be healthy and ready to be Washington's feature back in 2019, but the LSU product could certainly use a veteran mentor like Peterson in the locker room, so it makes sense the Redskins want to keep him around.
