Adrian Peterson Presser: “This running back room is incredible, we have so much talent”

Adrian Peterson speaks to the media after today's practice

Adrian Peterson stepped up to the Zoom mic to answer some questions today. He has younger players asking him about his workouts and maintaining his body at his age. He invites anyone who wants to come work out with him, and he will help them.

Peterson is impressed with the talent in Washington’s running backs room. Bryce Love, Antonio Gibson, J.D. McKissic, and Peyton Barber are all in their first training camp here, and are looking to make an impact. Peterson praised Gibson, and said he’s an athlete, and he’s so big he could probably play linebacker.

Practices have been night and day going from Jay Gruden to Ron Rivera. The new coaching staff is demanding, but just want the players to do things the right way. Peterson loves the new offense, and says it allows them to spread the field, and make things more difficult for defenses.
