Adrian Peterson: 'Norv Turner will be the perfect hire'

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson believes that Norv Turner is the "perfect guy" to take control of his side's offense to improve their passing game

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson believes that Norv Turner will be the "perfect guy" to turn around his side's offense.

Turner is reportedly poised to assume the role of offensive coordinator at the club and will be tasked with improving the Vikings' 23rd-ranked passing offense in the 2013 season.

"I'll tell you, our pass offense has really struggled in the past couple years," Peterson told USA Today. "I think [Turner] is going to be the perfect guy to come in and get us on the right path."

Turner is currently the offensive coordinator of the Cleveland Browns, where he has been for just one season after being fired as head coach of the San Diego Chargers in 2012.
