Washington also waived offensive tackle Cameron Jefferson with an injury designation.

Peterson joins a running back group that has been depleted by injuries through the team's first two preseason games. The team can see what he has got left in the tank during these final two preseason games and then make a decision anytime between now and September 1 without financial commitment.

National Football League contracts are not guaranteed until September 1, so there is no risk in signing Peterson to a contract.

Coach Jay Gruden said Sunday he's not looking for a starter, even with second-rounder Derrius Guice lost for the year with a torn ACL. Samaje Perine and Byron Marshall were also injured during the Redskins' preseason game against the New York Jets last week.

The Redskins hosted Peterson on a visit today after a recent rash of injuries at the running back position.

Peterson struggled last season, rushing for only 529 yards on 156 carries during stints with the New Orleans Saints and Arizona Cardinals. Charles, 31, will meet with team officials, according to the NFL Network.

The Redskins, depleted at running back, are willing to find out. That injury brought an early end to Peterson's 2017 season. But he complained publicly about his role right away, and was traded to the Arizona Cardinals after averaging three yards per carry over four games.

The team announced the signing Monday after meeting with Peterson, a four-time All-Pro running back. "There were a few years where he was the bulk of the offense, run game and pass game".

The Redskins open the regular season September 9 at Arizona. The 33-year-old is 12th all-time in rushing and needs just 37 yards to crack the top 10. Peterson's last big season came in 2015, when he rushed for 1,485 yards and 11 touchdowns.

"It's not often you get to play with a first ballot Hall of Famer twice", Williams said.
