The Redskins have a need at running back after losing rookie second-round pick Derrius Guice to a torn ACL in his left knee in the team's preseason opener on August 9. Samaje Perine and Byron Marshall were also injured during the Redskins' preseason game against the New York Jets last week. The team waived another back, Martez Carter, on Saturday with an injury designation.

The Washington Redskins have turned their attention to a pair of available running backs with serious legacies to their name as they hope to shore up a thin corps at running back. The Redskins also worked out Orleans Darkwa as well.

Peterson has signed a one-year deal worth the veteran minimum if $1.015 million with Washington, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN via John Keim, today.

"We've had very [unlucky] situations with our running backs", Gruden explained. Obviously we played before but his body of work and what he's done in this league speaks for itself, so guys are always going to be eager to pay with him. "So we just want to make sure we are covering all our bases right now, and we will address it when we feel like we have to".

Peterson ranks 12th on the NFL's all-time rushing list with 12,276 yards, but only had 529 yards and two touchdowns last season with New Orleans and Arizona.

The 33-year-old, who was the 2012 NFL MVP, sits second among active rushers in yards and attempts, behind Frank Gore. As a receiver, Peterson caught 11 passes for 70 yards combined last season.
