Vikings OC Norv Turner plans to get Adrian Peterson involved in the passing game.
Peterson has averaged a paltry 5.6 yards per reception over the last two seasons, primarily, operating as a check-down option. Turner plans to use him more creatively this season, getting him in space and allowing him to make plays. When asked what how he sees his role in the scheme, A-Pete said, "The all-purpose back, you know, what I've always envisioned myself as, the Marshall Faulk." Peterson isn't going to suddenly turn into a 60-catch guy, but he could push toward his career-high of 43 grabs set in 2009. Jun 21 - 9:47 AM
