Norv Turner: Expect Adrian Peterson to Catch 50-60 Passes

Former Oklahoma running back Adrian Peterson is the focal point of the Vikings offense, but his receiving numbers have never come close to his sky-high rushing totals. In fact, he has caught 40 passes just twice in his career, with his career-high for receptions being 43. However, it sounds like AP AD will be a much bigger part of the Vikings passing attack next season, as new offensive coordinator Norv Turner sounds ready to get the ball into AP’s AD's hands out of the backfield on passing plays more often.

Turner told KFAN that he expects Peterson to catch between 50 and 60 passes next season, and that would easily be a new career record for the future HOFer. The Vikings OC said, ”I would expect Adrian Peterson to catch 50/60 balls next year.” (FanSided)
