Immediately after the 2012 season, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson made one of those statements that would sound like a throwaway comment from anyone else. After coming nine yards short of breaking the NFL single-season rushing record, Peterson told NFL Network that he wanted to rush for 2,500 yards in 2013.
Four months later, Peterson still sounds serious about it; he's listing it as a goal.
"It's not something I'm going to focus on early. I'll let the chips fall where they may. I've got my bar set for 2,500 yards," Peterson told SI.com recently. "If I can go over that, the record will be shattered. But ultimately I want a couple rings. You gotta start at one.".(NFLcom)
