Titans Sign Adrian Peterson to Replace Derrick Henry

The Tennessee Titans have been busy on Monday as the team will be without running back Derrick Henry for roughly 10 weeks and will be handing the keys over to newly signed Adrian Peterson.

Essentially the team is replacing the most dominant back of this era, with one of the most dominant ever. The only problem is the giant question mark that Peterson brings with him as the free agent hasn't played a meaningful snap in quite some time.

The Titans lost Henry to a foot injury against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday and of course, Henry was strong enough to stay in the game despite having a broken foot. The Titans moved quickly and worked out Peterson and signed him basically on the spot to the team's practice squad, before elevating him to their active roster.

As for Peterson, the future hall of famer had this to say about working out for the Titans:

The workout was good. It feels good to get back into football movement and to sign with a contender. We have big shoes to fill for Derrick Henry, who I feel was the front-runner for MVP, but I'm looking forward to contributing to the running back room and helping the Titans to win the division and to chase the ultimate goal of winning a championship.
