Rookie Dwayne Hoskins then set a 2-5 record after taking over as Washington’s starting defender Redskins in the middle of last season, but his teammate Adrian Peterson expects an improvement from the Ohio product in 2020.
“I want it to blossom. I expect big things from it,” Peterson told reporters Thursday in a conference call. “I know he’s been in his book and he’s working hard to be the leader we need him to be.
“I think last year was to open my eyes to him, just the transition he went through training camp until the end of the season. I was able to see him grow. That’s what I expect him to do with this new system and helping this team to won the championship. “
Hoskins, who turned 23 months old this month, finished 2019 with 1,365 passing yards, completing 58.6 percent of his attempts while throwing seven passes and seven interceptions.
Peterson, meanwhile, had the lowest career volume of the season, playing more than 12 games. In 15 appearances (all starts) he won 898 yards on 211 bears and won five touchdowns.
He will return to the team with new head coach Ron Rivera, the former head coach of the Carolina Panthers, who was hired by Washington on December 31. The Red Skinners fired Jay Gruden in October after a 0-5 start and acting coach Bill Callahan produced 3-8 marks for the rest of the season.
Rivera then hired Scott Turner to act as offensive coordinator. Turner previously served as assistant coach to the Panthers, Cleveland Browns and Minnesota Vikings.
Peterson said of the transition to a new crime: “Turner was in Minnesota, so some of the insults are somehow familiar, but one thing I’ve taken from his crime so far is that running back has a really big role. , we will be asked to do many things, we will have a few backs on the field at times. Just going through and learning the insult right now is exciting to see, exactly our role in our offense. “
Red skins piled up earlier this season, signing former Tampa Bay wallet Pucon Barber for a free agent deal and choosing Antonio Gibson from Memphis in the third round of last month’s draft.
“Both of these boys are talented, especially the young man who comes and what he can do at school,” Peterson said. “I think it was a good move. It was a good move by the Redskins. When you have good players and playmates out there, you want to add these guys to your team.
“Obviously our ultimate goal is to win a championship, so if we feel like it doesn’t matter what position it is. If this person can be effective and help this team win, then you will bring these guys in. I’m excited to actually go back there, put on the pads and see what these people look like in person. “
