Detroit Lions’ RB Adrian Peterson has stern message for Washington Football Team

When all is said and done, Detroit Lions running back Adrian Peterson (still feels odd to type that) will go down as one of the greatest to ever play in the NFL.

After all, Peterson, who is now 35, ranks No. 5 on the all-time rushing yards list, behind Emmitt Smith, Walter Payton, Frank Gore, and Lions’ legend, Barry Sanders.

Unless something crazy happens, Peterson will not pass Sanders in 2020 as he is still 703 yards behind, but assuming he plays in 2021, he will likely bump Barry to No. 5.

This coming Sunday, Peterson and the Lions will host his former team, the Washington Football Team, at Ford Field. Peterson played for the Washington franchise for two seasons before they abruptly decided to cut him.

Peterson compared being cut by Washington to a “gunshot.”

“I don’t know really how to describe it. Kind of just like a gutshot — bam, just got hit in the gut and things just kind of change for you. The gameplan had to be pieced together rather quickly,” Peterson said. 

“The one thing I always try to do in this situation is just take it for what it is. I don’t really take too many things just like really personal, especially in this league, because I know the business,” Peterson added.

That being said, Peterson does have a message for The Washington Football team.

“I would be lying to you, if I told you that chip on my shoulder wasn’t there,” Peterson told Darren Haynes of CBS affiliate WUSA9 in Washington, D.C. “They will get to realize what they let go.”

He added, “It was an awkward situation. It was like bam, I was cut. Just like that with no notice. It was a great journey and great opportunity. They allowed me to show that I can still play this game at a high level. I will always have love for the DMV area. It was critical for my career. It’s a reason why I’m still playing in this league now at a high level.”

Nation, do you think Peterson will have a big game vs. Washington? Or, will he have a game similar to what he had last Sunday against his other former team, the Minnesota Vikings, when he had just 8 carries for 29 yards?
