The Bears could be looking to add a new running back.

If Washington doesn’t retain Adrian Peterson, Chicago might be interested in making a play on the 2012 MVP, according to an NFL Network report.

Teams reportedly have interest in trading for Chicago’s young running back Jordan Howard, who will be an unrestricted free agent in 2020. Howard’s perceived value and the free agency market are expected to impact the Bears’ effort to add new personnel to their backfield.

According to the NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, the Bears could be the team to land Adrian Peterson depending on what happens with AP and Washington.

The 33-year-old back signed a one-year deal with the Skins last season after injuries plagued Washington’s backfield. AP rushed for over 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns with a 4.2 yard per rush average, as he proved doubters wrong once again in 2018.

Tom Pelissero added that Brad Childress could even be joining Matt Nagy’s coaching staff next season, which further increases the chances that AP could be a target for Chicago.
