Washington's Adrian Peterson interested in 4 more seasons
Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson indicated he wants to play four more seasons.
"Man, why not four more years?" Peterson asked rhetorically. "Why not? I don't want to ever be in a position where I look back and say, 'Man, I should have played two more years. I should have played another year.' I want to enjoy it. I'm still chasing a championship. You know, I still can play the game at a high level. For those reasons, and having that love and passion for the game, I'm going to continue to keep the ball rolling." In addition to pursuing a Super Bowl ring, Peterson is 4,139 rushing yards away from Emmitt Smith's all-time mark. He's averaged 62.6 yards per game over the last two seasons, so if he can continue to produce at that rate and stay healthy for another four years, Peterson will put himself in position to take the top spot. Derrius Guice is expected to be Washington's lead back, but new offensive coordinator Scott Turner previously said Peterson still has a role in the offense. Last year became the 10th time that Peterson had over 200 rushing attempts in a season, but only the second time he failed to reach 1,000 rushing yards when given that workload.
numberFire's models project Peterson for 113.0 carries, 447.1 rushing yards, 15.1 targets, 10.8 receptions, 81.1 receiving yards, and 2.8 touchdowns. He's the RB52 in our preseason fantasy rankings.
