Adrian Peterson targeting 500 receiving yards
11 July 2017
Adrian Peterson wants to surpass 500 receiving yards this season.
Peterson's best single-season total was 436 yards playing with Brett Favre in 2009, and he thinks getting to work with Drew Brees will allow him to set a new personal best. The problem is the Saints have two backs -- Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara -- who are better in the passing game than Peterson and project to take on most of the receiving work. Peterson is full of confidence as usual, however, and coach Sean Payton said he does not think the veteran has lost a step. With Peterson sure to be the subject of many puff pieces in training camp, his ADP is likely to get out of control in the very near future.
