Adrian Peterson reveals that he's recently talked with Trent Williams in person

Adrian Peterson reveals that he's recently talked with Trent Williams in person

Adrian Peterson's Thursday session with reporters started off normally, with the running back forecasting what he thinks his role will be early this year and giving his opinion on how Derrius Guice has looked.

Then, it took a turn, when someone wondered if Peterson had been in contact with Trent Williams, the Washington left tackle who's still holding out and who is a close friend of Peterson's.

"I actually was talking to Trent last night, in person," he said, quite casually. "I talked to him."

Wait, Williams is, like, around?

"Yeah, he's here," Peterson elaborated. "He had to come back to take care of some things. I don't know how long he's going to be in town. I don't know all that. It was just good for me to be able to catch up with him and see him because I hadn't seen him in a long time."

Now, it's important not to totally overreact to this. As JP Finlay pointed out on Twitter, Williams' kids could go to school in the area, for example, and this is when school is starting. Maybe he's "taking care" of something more mundane like that, as opposed to planning his return.

However, when you couple this with DeAngelo Hall recently saying that Williams' dispute with the Redskins could end "soon rather than later," then maybe there is some hope building in regards to the team getting one of its best players back and ending this messy situation.

Peterson, though, didn't want to share much of what he and Williams discussed, a conversation that apparently didn't involve much football.

"That's not what we kind of talked about," Peterson said. "We just kind of caught up, see how he was doing, how things have been going for him."

He did mention that Williams seems to be in a solid mental place as well as in his usual top shape. 

"He's doing good. He's doing really good," Peterson said. "He's always going to take care of his body. This type of situation, you're going to make sure you're healthy and ready to roll at any point."

Ultimately, different people are going to take this tidbit different ways. Still, whatever the reason for Williams re-appearing in the area, it's better having him here than far away from Redskins headquarters. Could the next person he chats with be someone in the front office?

Winning a truck is DeAngelo Hall's fondest 2011 Pro Bowl memory

Winning a truck is DeAngelo Hall's fondest 2011 Pro Bowl memory

In the midst of the Pro Bowl being underway former Redskins’ defensive back DeAngelo Hall took a trip down memory lane. 

During Good Morning Football this week, the 2011 Pro Bowl MVP DeAngelo Hall said his favorite memory from the Pro Bowl wasn't exactly anything that happened on the football field.

You would think he would mention his impressive performance which included six tackles, an interception and a fumble returned for a touchdown. 

But no. His highlight of the day was winning a truck for his MVP performance. 

“I told my buddies going into it I wanted to buy a truck so I said hey, if I win this MVP I don't need to buy a truck so I called the shot ladies and gentlemen I really did," he said. 

It must have been a really special prize because to this day, he said, he still owns the truck.

You have to see this video of Daron Payne buying his mom a house

The Redskins drafted Daron Payne with the 13th overall pick in 2018, changing the big defensive lineman's life immediately. Making the NFL is a dream for many players, but going in the first round means even more. 

It means life-changing wealth, and for Payne, the ability to keep a promise to his mother. 

Not much needs to be added when a video tells the story, but it's worth noting some of the comments from Payne's Instagram page from other NFL players. 

Redskins DL Matt Ioannidis: "This is awesome! Congrats!"

Redskins DB Quinton Dunbar: "She was patient bro that’s everything ❤️"

Packers DE Preston Smith: "Bro that’s a blessing"

Redskins Director of Player Development Malcolm Blacken: "Man this is what it’s all about! 👊🏾👊🏾🔥"

Saints SS D.J. Swearinger: "Yeeeessssirrrr!!!! #congratsfoolie!!! That’s what it’s all about!! Being That Rock & Provider For The Love one!! ✊🏾"

Not the last, but maybe the best was former Redskins DL Ziggy Hood: "My guy I told myself I'm not crying on a sat morning, ✊🏾"

Payne has been one of the Redskins best players since he was drafted. In two years he's logged seven sacks and 112 tackles as a force in the middle of the team's defensive line.
