Adrian Peterson "We're all ready to take a knee together."

Adrian Peterson issued a strong statement on Friday on behalf of himself and perhaps Washington Redskins and many, if not all NFL players.

Adrian Peterson hosted a charity event in Houston, Texas Friday at the facility he owns with Trent Williams and issued a loud statement. 

Peterson and rookie Chase Young have been the most outspoken so far among Redskins players regarding the crisis. Dwayne Haskins has not said much on the issue. 

Here's a quick "Locked on Redskins" audio report of the breaking news. 

During media availability, Peterson expressed his frustration with New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees.

Peterson was of course moved and angered by the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis last week.

Chiefs Injury Update: Good News, Bad News for WFT

One star is out, the other is in doubt, for Sunday against WFT

Peterson was asked about a potential fallout if he and many others go through with his promise.

Moments after news came out of Peterson's words, the NFL released this from Commissioner Roger Goodell. 

Clearly, they were working on that before Peterson promised more action but is kind of interesting how this all came to head on a late Friday afternoon, which is considered a "news dump" type of time. 

Essentially a delivery of news or information that you want to be swept under the rug. 

The event, hosted by Peterson, included Alex Bregman of the Houston Astros was for a very good cause.
