Adrian Peterson thinks playing with Drew Brees will give him a chance to showcase his skills in the passing game.
"A lot of people say, 'Well, he can't catch the ball,'" Peterson said. "I've been playing since I was 7 years old. I can catch a football. It's all about having a guy that's going to get the ball to you, and without a doubt I know Brees is going to. We'll be doing that." This backfield is hard to predict, but Peterson has drawn a ton of hype and expects to be used as a receiver more than he ever was in Minnesota, outside of two seasons with Brett Favre. After Favre left, Peterson averaged 2.0 catches per game across 61 healthy contests. He averaged 2.55 with Favre. Brees has always been a fan of throwing to his backs. The question is if the Saints will put Peterson in position to catch many balls by using him in pass situations. If so, Peterson's ceiling can be high-end RB2. Jun 13 - 8:45 PM
