Titans sign Adrian Peterson

The start of November has been too busy for the Tennessee Titans. Just this Monday morning, a foot injury suffered by superstar Derrick Henry had been confirmed, but the team only took a few hours to find him a replacement: in a consequent move, the Titans signed veteran Adrian Peterson, and this is what you should know about it.

Adrian Peterson is the Titans’ new running back

From now on and at least for the rest of the 2021 NFL Season, the Titans will have a new running back. Via NFL’s Ian Rapoport HalfOn Monday afternoon, it was announced that Tennessee signed veteran RB Adrian Peterson, placing him on the practice squad and activating him to the roster of 53 in a subsequent move.

The news comes just hours after it was announced that RB Derrick Henry, who this year leads the NFL in both yards and touchdowns, will undergo foot surgery on Tuesday due to an injury that will keep him out of the game. pitch of between 6 to 10 weeks, with the possibility that his 2021 has come prematurely to an end.

Thus, the Titans have decided to replace Henry, a possible candidate for the league’s MVP, with Peterson, who will surely be Hall of Famer the day he decides to retire. Peterson is a 36-year veteran who shined 10 seasons in Minnesota; he also played two seasons for Washington, and one in Arizona, Detroit and New Orleans. In addition, at the moment, he has a total of 14,820 total rushing yards, the fifth most in NFL history, only behind the legendary Barry Sanders, Frank Gore, Walter Payton and Emmitt Smith.

Finally, although it is no longer 2012, the Titans hope that the Peterson acquisition can solve the problems of a depth chart Lacking talent at the running back position, the team’s RB2 is Jeremy McNichols, who has hardly seen any action on the pitch this year. In fact, he only posted a meager 7 total carries for 38 yards, no touchdowns. So, taking the above into account, Peterson’s signature makes too much sense.

However, one thing is undeniable. In the Titans it is time for QB Ryan Tannehill to show locals and strangers that he can take over a top-notch offense, and that Tennessee is not, as many believe, a team entirely dependent on what Henry did or not in the field.
