    AD wants to get fat

    [size=13pt]Peterson looks to add weight[/size]

    Judd Zulgad
    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 NFL’s leading rusher in 2008, knows the key in doing this will be to not lose speed.

    “That would be pretty nice,” Peterson said. “I don’t think too many guys would be excited to see me at 230 [pounds] two times a year.” Peterson explained that the additional weight will help him endure the long season and make him “more explosive.”

    I hope the extra weight helps his "cushion" the ball better so he doesn't fumble so much.

    It would definitely help with his durability....just so it doesn't make him slow!

    I already thought he was big I just hope it doesn't slow him down, if feels his frame can handle the extra weight without loosing the explosiveness and speed I'm all for it. A 230 pound Peterson with his intagibles is a dangerous dude.

    Would add to his durability as well. Might not get hurt as much from hits

    Hopefully he ads it to his legs.

    His upper body is big enough, it's just going to hurt his speed if his weight is up high, if it's in the place that generates the speed it may even help.

    Keep the movements explosive, make sure it's clean weight.


    With NFL Strength and Conditioning coaches, I don't think we have anything to worry about.
