The Seattle Seahawks have signed Adrian Peterson to their practice squad.

"Excited to see if he can help us out and give us a little something," Pete Carroll said. "He's a player that I've known forever -- way back to his high-school days -- and admired him tremendously over the years. Always disappointed we didn't get him back in the day, but like I just told him, we finally got him. So I'm looking forward to seeing how he does and where he can fit in. He's an incredible competitor and a great guy, so I'm anxious to give him a chance to get on the field with our boys."

Peterson was waived last week by the Tennessee Titans.
