The Tennessee Titans have signed free agent running back Adrian Peterson on Monday. He has been signed to the team’s practice squad.
The 36-year-old is expected to be added to the team’s active roster in the near future once he gets up to speed with the team’s offense. He flew to Nashville, Tennessee after it was announced that Derrick Henry was lost with an injury.
Initially, it was feared that Henry was lost for the rest of the season. However, after tests, neo the growing belief is that Henry — after he has surgery this week — will return to the team in two months depending on if the Titans are in the playoffs.
Peterson had been sitting out this season before signing with the Titans. Once he is called up to the active roster, this will be his sixth NFL team.
Last season, he played for the Detroit Lions, where he made 10 starts. He appeared in all 16 games.
With the Lions, he had 156 carries for 604 yards and seven touchdowns.
Once he is promoted, it’ll likely be running back by committee for Titans head coach Mike Vrabel. Right now, Jeremy McNichols is the only running back on the active roster.
Peterson and Mekhi Sargent are on the team’s practice squad. Both players could potentially join McNichols on the active roster.
In his career, the future Hall of Famer has made 180 appearances, including 164 starts. He has had 3,192 Carrie’s for 14,820 yards and 118 touchdowns.
Peterson would be the oldest back in the league once activated from the practice squad. He is fifth on the all-time rushing list with 14,820 yards.
