(NEW YORK) — Running back Adrian Peterson has been carrying the Minnesota Vikings offense for years, but now he’s excited to see how the rest of the team’s playmakers have developed heading into the 2014 season.
“This is going to be the best offense I’ve played in. This is the offense I’ve been waiting for,” Peterson told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “We’ve got the pieces to facilitate moving the ball around. When Brett Favre was here, listen, when I saw those deep balls going up and guys making big plays, I was like, ‘Yeah!’ That makes your team very scary.”
During the offseason, the team hired Norv Turner to run their offense. Turner is one of the more proven coordinators in the game right now and will give the team a boost on game days.
As far as personnel goes, the team drafted quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, emerging playmakers Cordarrelle Patterson and Kyle Rudolph, as well as veteran Greg Jennings.
The 29-year-old Peterson has rushed for 10,115 yards in just seven seasons in the NFL.
