[size=13pt]Peterson looks to add weight[/size]
Vikings Pro Bowl running back Adrian Peterson will be looking to add 7 to 12 pounds to his 6-1, 218-pound frame this offseason, according to an Associated Press story that you can find on the Star Tribune website. Peterson, the NFLâ€™s leading rusher in 2008, knows the key in doing this will be to not lose speed.
â€œThat would be pretty nice,â€ Peterson said. â€œI donâ€™t think too many guys would be excited to see me at 230 [pounds] two times a year.â€ Peterson explained that the additional weight will help him endure the long season and make him â€œmore explosive.â€
