Vikings Owner Anxious For 2015

Posted: Updated:

 Vikings ownership is gleefully looking forward to a successful season.

Minnesota Vikings Owner/President Mark Wilf says, "Personally, this is the most excited I've been since purchasing the team, but again there's a lot of hard work ahead. The optimism comes from not just so much about the talent, but also what we have as far as organizationally, structurally, we have a GM and a coach, and coaching staff we believe in, we feel we have a pool of talent, but again a lot of hard work is ahead for us to get where we want to go."

The team finished the 2014 season with a 7–9 record, despite former MVP running back Adrian Peterson sitting most of the year out.

Peterson is back and has lofty expectations for this season on a quest to rush for 2500 yards.

Minnesota Vikings Running Back Adrian Peterson says, "That's the number I always go back to because it's not going to change, the next three years, I'm going to be asked the same thing, and I'm going to say 25 again, but it's a goal, I'm always setting high standards for myself. I feel like that right there would shut down, but it doesn't, I always get asked that question, but it's okay."

The star running back restructured the last three years of his contract... just prior to the start of camp.
