When the Washington Redskins signed Adrian Peterson in August, speculation centered on whether he could last all 16 games. Many also wondered at what level he could perform.
He's topped 1,000 yards and he'll play all 16 games. That's why Peterson said he showed he could still play football at a high level.
"If you watch football, if you know anything about football, then you know that he's still got a lot left," Peterson, who turns 34 in March, said of himself. "If you can't see that, you're blind."
Peterson reiterated what he told ESPN earlier this month, that he wants to stay in Washington. A week after rookie Derrius Guice tore his ACL in August, the Redskins signed Peterson to a one-year deal for the veterans minimum.
Peterson said he's not in a rush to have his future settled. His kids attend school in the area, but he will return to Houston to train as he does each offseason.
