Minnesota's all-time leading rusher signed with the New Orleans Saints in April. Coincidentally, the Vikings open their regular season against the Saints on Monday Night Football at U.S. Bank Stadium.
Earlier this month, Peterson told Saints.com that he plans "to run for about 150-200 yards" against his former teammates.
