Adrian Peterson the running back of the Minnesota Vikings is hoping to land 2,500 yards in 2016. 

“I always keep the mark at twenty-five, so if I get close to that, that’s not bad,” Peterson told the Vikings’ website.


Eric Dickerson’s NFL record of 2,105 yards has stood since 1984, and the closest anyone has come to breaking it was Peterson himself, when he ran for 2,097 yards in 2012.

“I’m excited to get back into the mix, to be the extra piece in coach Turner’s offense, and to see what we can do. We’ve got a couple more pieces offensively that I think can really push us over the hump, and I think it’s really going to be an exciting year for us,” Peterson said.
