The Minnesota Vikings hired a new offensive coordinator in January, and running back Adrian Peterson has seen a noticeable change.

Peterson says the offense that new OC Norv Turner has installed in Minnesota is "going to be the best I've ever played in," according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune

"This is the offense I've been waiting for," said Peterson. "I've been watching the offense the last few games, and it's like, 'Man, they don't even need me."

Peterson has been sitting out the Vikings' preseason as he prepares for the regular season.

The running back said teams will have to play more honest against the Vikings, who he believes have the pieces to "facilitate moving the ball around."

"When Brett Favre was here, listen, when I saw those deep balls going up and guys making big plays, I was like, 'Yeah!' That makes your team very scary," he said.

Turner, who replaced Bill Musgrave, spent 2013 in Cleveland and has also been the offensive coordinator for for the Chargers, 49ers, Dolphins and Cowboys.
