Adrian Peterson: We won't be predictable this year
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson sounds thrilled with the change in offensive coordinators from Bill Musgrave to Norv Turner.

"This is what I've been looking for the past seven years," Peterson told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "And now I feel like we have an offense that fits our talent and what we have as far as the players at their positions and what they're able to do. I'm pretty excited for what Norv Turner is putting in for us. It's putting guys in opportunities to make plays and be more versatile as an offense. So I'm stoked about that."

Peterson said it's refreshing to play in an offense that's unpredictable.

"Not to take anything away from the coaches we had before, but just being more versatile as an offense," he said. "I just call it what it is. I feel in the past, we were predictable. You guys wrote stories about being predictable in the past seven years. You won't be able to write that story this year. That's pretty much all that I'm saying. You won't be able to do that because this offense is so versatile."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph won't have to worry about entering the final season of his contract without an extension any longer. He signed a five-year extension on Sunday, according to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports. The deal is worth $36.5 million, with $19.4 million guaranteed, per ESPN.

Rudolph has lost about 15 pounds and is expecting a bigger role this upcoming season. His 2013 season was cut short because of a broken left foot. He caught 30 passes for 313 yards and three touchdowns in eight games last season.
