Peterson Workin' On It
He has been one of my favorite running backs since he was a Sooner. I was thrilled when the Vikes drafted him. Sometimes he drives me crazy when he fumbles the ball away. I for one hope that his offseason work has paid off greatly.
The running backs carried a 14-pound football filled with sand during one drill that the network showed. Reporter Solomon Wilcots described it as the football version of a medicine ball, designed to help the running backs get a better feel for the football and presumably help reduce fumbles.
With the mandatory mini camp coming up this weekend. Chilly want AD to work on his fumbling issue. I just hope that it all works out and he has done enough this offseason to merit more trust from Chilly.
Last season, nobody will say, but there were some trust issues with AD and Chilly with AD carrying the ball down the stretch of a close game. I hope to see AD run out some games with more confidience in him from the coaching staff.
