Adrian Peterson is back, looking stronger and confident than he’s ever been.
The Vikings star sets a lofty rushing goal for each season, and this one is no different, as Peterson told the teams official website that 2,500 is the number.
“I always keep the mark at twenty-five (2,500), so if I get close to that, that’s not bad,” Peterson told the Vikings’ official site.
It’s a number that Peterson has referenced several times before.
I want to try to set the ball higher than that,” Peterson said in January 2013. “I want to make it the 2,500 club. … It’s definitely out there. I feel like it’s definitely attainable.”
Peterson would have to average about 157 rushing yards per game over 16 weeks to join the “2,500 club.” That in itself would be just amazing.
