Now that offensive coordinator Norv Turner has arrived, bringing what should be a more aggressive scheme to the Minnesota Vikings, running back Adrian Peterson said he's playing in the offense he's "been looking for for the past seven years."

And in the process of talking about Turner, Peterson admitted just how staid he thought the Vikings had become.

"Let's call it what it is: I thought in the past, we've been predictable," Peterson said. "I'm sure you guys wrote stories about us being predictable the past seven years. You won't be able to write that story this year. That's pretty much all I'm saying. You won't be able to do that, because this offense is so versatile."

During the first seven years of his career, Peterson played in offenses that were generally accused of being predictable or overly conservative. That charge got particularly loud the last three seasons, with Bill Musgrave running the offense under head coach Leslie Frazier, but Peterson largely held his tongue while he was playing for those coaches.
