Adrian Peterson: We won't be predictable this year
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/28/14) Vikings running back Adrian Peterson sounds thrilled with the change in offensive coordinators from Bill Musgrave to Norv Turner.

"This is what I've been looking for the past seven years," Peterson told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "And now I feel like we have an offense that fits our talent and what we have as far as the players at their positions and what they're able to do. I'm pretty excited for what Norv Turner is putting in for us. It's putting guys in opportunities to make plays and be more versatile as an offense. So I'm stoked about that."

Peterson said it's refreshing to play in an offense that's unpredictable.

"Not to take anything away from the coaches we had before, but just being more versatile as an offense," he said. "I just call it what it is. I feel in the past, we were predictable. You guys wrote stories about being predictable in the past seven years. You won't be able to write that story this year. That's pretty much all that I'm saying. You won't be able to do that because this offense is so versatile."

You won't see much of Adrian Peterson in the preseason
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/28/14) Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said Monday that running back Adrian Peterson won't get many preseason carries. The veteran has a long-standing track record of success that Zimmer is obviously familiar with. "I don't need to see him," Zimmer said according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune
Vikings want to turn Peterson's carries into catches
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/17/14) It's hard to believe but Adrian Peterson is 29 years old (he turns 30 next March). He has 2,126 career carries including the playoffs. The Vikings coaches are aware of this and want Peterson to remain as dominant as ever without the wear and tear. 

That's why Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner has new plans for Peterson as he installs his offense. Turner, along with head coach Mike Zimmer, want to turn some of Peterson's carries into catches, according to ESPN. Not only should that cut down on the wear-and-tear he'd take on, but it also puts the explosive Peterson out in space against smaller defenders. 

Peterson had a career high 43 catches for 436 yards in 2009. He's never had more than one receiving touchdown in a season. 

Adrian Peterson expects backlash if he's ever cut
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/19/14) Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is the face of the franchise, and his likeness is being used in artists' renderings of the team's new stadium, which is scheduled to open in 2016. But will Peterson be on the team when the stadium opens

Peterson said Wednesday he understands he might not, reports USA Today. And he thinks if he's not on the team then fans would be quite unhappy.

"I think the organization would take a heavy hit – for real – more so from the fan base," Peterson said. "I don't think it would be like a LeBron (James) situation where they're burning my jersey, this, that and the other. They might be doing (the opposite) and not buying some season tickets."

When the stadium opens, Peterson will 31 years old. He has undergone surgeries in three straight offseasons and has a hefty contract, which is scheduled to pay him $58 million through 2017, none of it guaranteed.

Report: Vikes don't want to hold onto Adrian Peterson
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/12/14) The Vikings would like to part ways with running back Adrian Peterson "sooner rather than later," reports Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman. Peterson just turned 29 and is due to make base salaries of $11.75 million and $12.75 million the next two seasons.

Freeman contends that's "an impossible salary structure to pay a player in today's game, where the running back position has been greatly devalued."

An AFC general manager told Freeman he expects this season to be Peterson's last with Minnesota.
