Adrian Peterson will continue wearing burgundy and gold next season after agreeing to a two-year deal with Washington, Josina Anderson of ESPN.com reports.

Peterson ran for 1,042 yards previous year with the Redskins.

If you thought Adrian Peterson's career was over when the Vikings made a decision to not bring him back after the 2016 season, do we have some news for you.

In December, Peterson said he wanted to return and "finish on a better note" with the Redskins. "It shows a lot about this team, this locker room, the coaches surrounding us as well, so that's something I would love to be a part of". Peterson, who turns 34 later this month, will likely have to split carries with Guice and Chris Thompson, but both he and coach Jay Gruden said they felt like a rotation could work. Peterson has $1.5 million in incentives each season.

With 13,318 yards, Peterson is the eighth-leading rusher in National Football League history.

As far as rushing touchdowns are concerned, Peterson's 106 are tied for fifth all time with Jim Brown.

Due to a diminished role with the New Orleans Saints and a neck injury after a trade to the Arizona Cardinals, Peterson finished the 2017 season with just 529 yards.

Peterson went to seven Pro Bowls in his first 10 seasons with the Minnesota Vikings. The back known as AP rushed for 2,097 yards in 2012, his best season, in which he was named MVP.
