Redskins Adrian Peterson reacts to Trent Williams trade with disappointment – ClutchPoints

The saga surrounding former Washington Redskins left tackle Trent Williams finally came to an end after he was traded to the San Francisco 49ers. Running back Adrian Peterson has since offered up his thoughts on the return.

Washington traded Williams for fifth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and a third-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Although he is happy to see a deal finally get done, Adrian Peterson admits he was hoping for a bigger haul, via Zachary Neel of the Redskins Wire:

It worked out, Adrian Peterson said on the Redskins post-draft live stream. You know, obviously, the things between Trent and the organization werent where it needed to be. But, you know, I wish we could have got more for him.

Adrian Peterson added that he will miss his former teammate and knows he landed in an ideal situation in San Francisco.

Hell be happy in San Francisco, Peterson said. But I know Ill miss him down there.

Petersons comments are certainly understandable considering Williams had played an integral role in helping him enjoy a resurgence in 2018. He had made it to seven consecutive Pro Bowls until his fallout with the team resulted in a lost 2019 campaign. Given the caliber of player he is at such an important position, Adrian Peterson was likely expecting to get more in return.

Unfortunately, it appears that was about as good as it was going to get for the front office. Adrian Peterson cant do anything about it. It is safe to say that Williams is happy with how it all turned out after being traded to a bonafide contender in the 49ers. Expectations remains as high as ever going into the 2020 NFL season coming off a loss in the Super Bowl.
