Some other notable jersey number designations: Running back Adrian Peterson (No. 28), safety Jayron Kearse (No. 42) and rookie defensive end Julian Okwara (No. 99). He rushed for 898 yards and five touchdowns last season, averaging 4.3 yards on a bad Washington team.

The Detroit Lions have had six top-43 picks in the National Football League draft the past three years.

Lions' centre Frank Ragnow, who was born and raised in Minnesota, could not get over the news.

Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press said the Lions "told Peterson during the courting process over the weekend that he could be their Week 1 starter".

"I was freaking out so much", Ragnow said. I mean, wild. Just wild. "It's Monday and he just got here so we'll see how everything goes". Kerryon Johnson showed promise but has dealt with injury problems.

"We'll see", Patricia said, according to Birkett. "Saw him too many years in the (Minnesota) purple and gold and he was doing his thing against us". Regardless, the connection is one reason to believe Peterson can get on the field right away.

Johnson's fandom makes a lot of sense when you think about it. Anytime you add talented guys to your team, it's going to help us, give us a better chance to win games.

Peterson is 1,053 yards behind Lions great Barry Sanders for fourth on the career rushing list.

Despite his age, Peterson produced almost 2,300 yards in rushing and receiving over the past two seasons in Washington and averaged 4.2 yards per carry while starting 31 games.
