Coming Off 1,000 Yard Season, Adrian Peterson Hopes To Play 2-3 More Years

All 32 NFL teams passed on Adrian Peterson last offseason. It took a Derrius Guice ACL injury in the preseason for the Redskins to sign him.

Well, Peterson proved to still have a lot left in the tank. Peterson’s 2018 season was his first 1,000-yard season since 2015. He finished with 1,042 yards and averaged 4.2 yards per carry.

When speaking with TMZ on Saturday, Peterson said he’s not thinking of retirement. 

“I’ll be playing next year for sure,” Peterson said. “Maybe two or three more years.”

Peterson currently ranks eighth in NFL History with 13,318 rushing yards. He needs 366 yards to pass LaDainian Tomlinson and Jerome Bettis.

Peterson, who turns 34 in March, will once again be a free agent this offseason. Maybe this time around teams won’t wait so long.
