ADRIAN PETERSON RUMORS

Minnesota Vikings’ RB Adrian Peterson ranked 2nd best in NFL, full top-30 revealed

When cover32 released its list of the top 10 running backs in the NFL today, there were plenty of people angry about their favorite team’s workhorse not making the list. It made for a spirited debate in the “Comments” section below the article. The second batch of RBs, Nos. 11-20, generated a similar response. The next logical step in the ranking of the game’s running backs...

Adrian Peterson: I wasn’t happy about being in Minnesota last season

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson wasn’t happy that head coach Leslie Frazier was fired last year, and was leery about playing for his third coach in eight years. But that all changed when the Vikings hired Mike Zimmer and offensive coordinator Norv Turner. “I wasn’t happy. I wasn’t feeling good about being here in Minnesota at the end of last season,...

Norv Turner: Vikings will divide QB reps differently

The Minnesota Vikings have a trio of quarterbacks competing for the Week 1 starting job.  But offensive coordinator Norv Turner has narrowed his focus to two quarterbacks receiving the most snaps in training camp. “I am pleased with the four days, the progress they have made and where they are at, and obviously, you cannot work three (quarterbacks) for a long time, so the reps...

VIDEO: Is Adrian Peterson the greatest running back of all time?

I couldn’t handle waiting for the NFL season to start anymore so a couple weeks ago I spluged and bought Game Rewind. If you need to ask yourself if it’s worth the investment then you need a splash of February Minnesota lake water in the face. One of the cooler things is they keep an archive of every game over the last five seasons, so I decided to take a look at Adrian Peterson’s...

OMG, Adrian Peterson Really IS the Wolverine!

Remember when Adrian Peterson first learned about the Wolverine from Matt Kalil in the training room? Peterson learned about Logan’s healing factor, how he can come back from injury like no other and still be as fierce, if not fiercer. Adrian liked that idea so much that he made a custom Vikings “Wolverine” jersey, and a special Wolverine hair helmet. He even called up Hugh...

Adrian Peterson praises versatile Minnesota Vikings offense

Adrian Peterson has played with some great hand-off quarterbacks for the Vikings since entering the league in 2007: Tarvaris Jackson, Kelly Holcomb, Brooks Bollinger, Gus Frerotte, Joe Webb, Christian Ponder, et al. Minnesota's milquetoast collection of signal-callers -- minus Brett Favre's unworldly 2009 campaign -- constantly have led the generational running back to eight...

Peterson won't play much in preseason but 'excited' about Vikings' new offense

MANKATO, Minn. -- Adrian Peterson has proven he doesn't need much of a dry run to be ready for the NFL season and he likely won't get much of one this season as he adapts to a new offense with coordinator Norv Turner. Peterson, who missed the preseason in 2012 following reconstructive knee surgery, went on to win the MVP award that season and rush for the second-most yards...

Adrian Peterson may not play in the preseason

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer told Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network that running back Adrian Peterson may not play in the preseason. Mike Zimmer told me he has nothing to see from Adrian Peterson in preseason. If he wants to get a carry or 2, he will. But may just get none — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) July 28, 2014 This is a smart move by Zimmer. Peterson has nothing to prove....

Vikings hope Peterson has larger role in passing game

MANKATO, Minn. -- Mike Zimmer was on the sidelines for Adrian Peterson's first regular-season NFL game in 2007, watching from the opposing sideline as Peterson took a short swing pass 60 yards for his first touchdown. Zimmer was the Atlanta Falcons' defensive coordinator at the time. He's able to appreciate such a play a little more these days as Peterson's coach...
