    Adrian Peterson signs deal with Redskins

    Running back Adrian Peterson has signed a one-year contract with the Washington Redskins, the team announced Monday.

    He signed for the veterans minimum of $1.015 million, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Peterson, 33, made seven Pro Bowls in 10 seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, but the team made him a free agent when it declined to exercise an option in his contract after the 2016 season. Peterson signed a two-year deal with New Orleans, but he was traded to Arizona on Oct. 10. The Cardinals released him after the season.

    Peterson ranks 12th on the NFL's all-time rushing list with 12,276 yards. He's added another 2,015 yards receiving. In 2012, Peterson rushed for 2,097 yards -- second-most in a season after Eric Dickerson.

    Last season with Arizona, Peterson had two games in which he rushed for 293 yards, but in four others he gained a combined 155. He was suspended by the NFL in 2014 for child abuse.
