    The 5 O’Clock Club: 2019 AD? The 5 o’clock club is published

    Wednesday to Saturday during the season Womens Josh Doctson Jersey , and aims to provide a forum for reader-driven discussion at a time of day when there isn’t much NFL news being published. Feel free to introduce topics that interest you in the comments below.Jay Gruden said that the Redskins signed Peterson because of the workout he did when he came to Redskins Park following the Derrius Guice injury. As I sat down to type this article, I went back and re-read the transcript from Gruden’s press conferences immediately after the Peterson signing.There’s a lot that I had forgotten.The Redskins went out of their way to stress that Peterson had no guaranteed money and that he wasn’t guaranteed a roster spot.A reporter asked if AD’s chances of making the roster were more dependent on injuries or performance.Gruden’s answer: “A little bit of both probably. We’ll weigh everything out and his performance will also have a lot to do with it. What he does, not only Friday, but during the weeks of practice leading up to the games.”The point here is that, even on the day that Peterson was introduced to the press, no one was actually sure if he would have enough left to make the roster.It wasn’t clear whether Peterson would be the starter or take a backup role behind either Rob Kelley or Samaje Perine.There were concerns about his age, his injury history, and his inconsistent production in 2017.There were concerns about Peterson’s running style (everyone knows he is a power-I back who simply can’t run out of the shotgun, and that he runs best behind a fullback).There were concerns about his workload, and whether he would wear down if he was given more than just a handful of carries per game.A lot of reporters and analysts could barely suppress the snickers of derision at the thought that the Redskins had done it again — Snyder had gone out and signed an over-the-hill veteran with a marquee name on the back of his jersey.All in all Authentic Matthew Ioannidis Jersey , there was a lot of healthy skepticism prior to the third preseason game when AD donned the burgundy and gold for the first time.Even after his 11 carries in that game, the sense of optimism about Peterson was guarded.But after three games, Adrian Peterson is 5th in the NFL in yards per game.He has punched in 3 touchdowns.He has contributed in the passing game.He has run with power, shiftiness and explosive burst through the hole.He has looked increasingly comfortable with his role on the team and in Jay Gruden’s offense, and Jay has clearly adapted the offensive attack to suit Adrian.With 236 rushing yards, 100 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns after three games, this is the pace that AD is setting if you do the math for a 16-game season:299 carries1,258 rushing yards26 receptions533 receiving yards16 TDsI’d be shocked if he actually hit all those numbers, but none of them is impossible, with the rushing yardage total being the most likely to be achieved.So here’s my question.If 2018 continues to go well for Peterson Cheap Jonathan Allen Jersey , then what?If he puts up 900 to 1,000 yards (or more) and scores more than a half dozen touchdowns while staying healthy and not wearing down late in the season...If the Redskins put up a winning record, and — especially if the Redskins get to the playoffs and AD plays well...then what?Should Adrian Peterson play for the Redskins again next year?If he does, how much should the team pay him?He’s playing for vet minimum at the moment, and he’ll be a year older.Should he play for the minimum and just be happy that the Redskins gave him an opportunity when no one else wanted him (a la Junior Galette)?Or should he be able to parlay his production into a more lucrative contract, as Vernon Davis did with the Redskins?With Derrius Guice due back next off-season, what role should AD have on the team if he is resigned?Should the starting job belong to Peterson?Should it belong to Guice?Should Gruden hold an open competition?Would a Peterson/Guice combination be good or bad for the Redskins?A wolf pack can only have one leader.Would Guice’s development as a runner and as a locker room leader be stunted by having the future Hall of Famer in the same room with him from week to week, or would it be an invaluable opportunity for the young man to learn from a man who came back from his own ACL injury and led the league in rushing the following year?Could Peterson handle being a backup?He didn’t seem to accept it well in New Orleans.Guice is clearly the Redskins future at the running back position, but would the team owe some loyalty to Peterson if, after coming in as a bit of an aging dark horse Youth D.J. Swearinger Jersey , he helped the team to a division championship and a spot in the playoffs?Would Peterson owe any loyalty to Gruden and the Skins for taking a chance on him when no other team was interested?In short, should Adrian Peterson, Redskins starting running back, future hall of famer, Trent Williams’ business partner, and 34-year-old running back be re-signed to play with the Redskins in 2019? If so, would you try to extend him during the season while he may still be willing to sign a team-friendly deal, or is it better to wait until the normal free agent frenzy period next March to try to get him back?Or — would it be better just to let him walk, hope he signs a studly contract with another team and earn a compensatory pick for letting him walk after just one season of bailing the team out of a deep hole.Would any other team even want him? The Redskins finally found a replacement for Defensive Backs Coach Torrian Gray, who left to return to the University of Florida. Former Cardinals Cheap Jordan Reed Jersey , Titans, and Browns Defensive Coordinator Ray Horton was lured out of a leisurely life of flying airplanes and golfing to return to the NFL to coach DBs for the Redskins. There were reports Horton could also become Washington’s Defensive Pass Game Coordinator, but that is reportedly not happening...yet.DeAngelo Hall was also interviewed for the Redskins’ DB coaching position. He was reportedly impressive enough to be considered for the job. Hall retired last year after 14 years in the NFL. He spent his final 10 seasons with the Redskins. Hall was reportedly interested in either a front office position, coaching, or broadcasting following his retirement.Hall also said that he was offered the DB coaching job at the University of Maryland. He was waiting to hear back from the Redskins, and new Terps HC Mike Locksley moved and hired Cory Robinson for DB Coach/Defensive Passing Game Coordinator. DeAngelo Hall also mentioned that current Defensive Coordinator Greg Manusky was in on the meetings with Head Coach Jay Gruden as Team President Bruce Allen mentioned during his recent Q&A with reporters.
