06/15/16 - RB Adrian Peterson hasn't been shy about his title dreams entering his 10th NFL season. Peterson believes the Vikings have the makings of a Super Bowl winner. In fact, he's so excited that he says even training camp won't be as bad this season. "I'll probably be a little more excited, but I'm never excited to go to training camp," Peterson said.
"It's always until I drive into Mankato and it's like, 'OK, the reality is there. It's time to start.' But I am excited as far as what we have and the vision that we have for this season. So that will make it a lot better going into camp this year."

Since the NFL began keeping official records in 1932, Peterson, 30, is only the third player in his 30s to win a rushing title. Marion Motley did it at 30 in 1950. Curtis Martin did it at 31 in 2004.
