Vikings feel no need for No. 1 pass catcher: ‘A lot of teams look for No. 1 guys, but they don’t have Adrian Peterson’

The Minnesota Vikings enter the 2016 season without a true number one receiver, but as one would say, why worry when you have Adrian Peterson eating up chunks of yards.

“The more you make plays, the more you get to play,” coach Mike Zimmer said, via the Star-Tribune.

“I don’t think there needs to be a No. 1 guy,” Jaruis Wright said.

“A lot of teams look for No. 1 guys, but they don’t have Adrian Peterson in the backfield to lean on like we do. I feel like our No. 1 guy is Adrian and we’re his supporting cast.”

“For us to take a next step as an offense, it’s on us to be more consistent in the passing game — make bigger plays in the passing game,” tight end Kyle Rudolph said.

“Take advantage of eight-man fronts, become more balanced.”
