Is The Clock Ticking On Adrian Peterson Being A Viking

With Norv Turner coming to Minnesota that changes the face of the Minnesota landscape. The Vikings won’t rely so much on Adrian Peterson running the ball. A young quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater and Jerrick McKinnon breathing down his back, Adrian could be on the trading block soon.

Adrian is the highest paid salary cap running back in the league at $10 million, next year the Vikings owe him $17 million, with his production going down, and his age going up, he becomes a liability for putting together a good team. He also turns 30.

Adrian disagrees, he says he thinks a balanced offense is just what he needs to open up his running game. He is reminded of two other running backs that did well under Offensive guru Norv Turner, namely Emmitt Smith and LaDainian Tomlinson, two world class running backs.

Norv Turner says Adrian understands there will be a little change and he is putting in the work. Turner also says, he plans to use Peterson as a running back too because that’s what he does best. Turner says the biggest difference is that Adrian won’t have to carry the team on his shoulders anymore.
