Adrian Peterson: I want to play 'two or three more years'

In case there was any doubt after last season, Adrian Peterson believes he's got plenty left in the tank.

In an interview with TMZ, Peterson said he'll absolutely be playing next season, and perhaps beyond. 

"I'll be playing next year for sure," the 33-year old said. "Maybe two or three more years, so we'll see how things pan out."

Peterson was one of the few bright spots of the 2018 Redskins season, stepping in for the injured Derrius Guice and rushing for 1,042 yards and seven touchdowns.

With Guice set to return from his torn ACL in 2019, it's doubtful Peterson would get the lion's share of the carries like last season if he comes back to the Redskins. 

However, Peterson's stated previously he'd love to return to Washington, and Guice could certainly benefit from a mentor like the future Hall of Famer. 

"I like him a lot; he's got a nice personality," Peterson said of Guice in December. "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."
