Adrian Peterson wants his NFL career to last beyond 2018.

The 33-year-old running back was a free agent for most of the offseason before he signed a one-year contract with the Redskins in August. Peterson said Thursday he does not see himself retiring after this season.

"Three to four more years would be ideal," Peterson said (via ESPN) "Not to say it hasn't been done before, but not at a high level. So of course, I plan on playing three to four more years, and I plan on playing those years at a high level as well."

Peterson struggled in 10 games with the Cardinals and Saints last season. But, he shined in his Redskins debut, rushing for 96 yards and a touchdown in their Week 1 win over Arizona.

  Redskins’ Adrian Peterson will get the start Sunday, reports say After signing a one-year deal with Washington just over two weeks ago, Adrian Peterson moved to the top of the depth chart, starting Sunday.Reports surfaced Wednesday saying Peterson would start just two weeks after signing a one-year, $1.015 million contract with the Redskins — his third one-year contract in just two seasons.

The 12-year veteran said he still has goals he wants to accomplish in the NFL.

"The best player ever to play is my mindset," Peterson said. "Being able to sit back and say I had a great time playing the game I love and I won a world championship and I was the best at my position."

Peterson said he’s aiming to be the top running back in football this season.

“Of course, there's a lot that I have to prove in order to be able to show that,” Peterson said. “Inside, I know that I feel I am. It's just about doing it for a full season."

The Redskins will face the Colts in Week 2 action Sunday.
