Adrian Peterson remains set in his belief that the Minnesota Vikings can win this year's Super Bowl, he told reporters on Wednesday.

“We have a long way to go, but we have the pieces of what it takes to accomplish that. So there’s nothing wrong with saying it,” Peterson said. “If any other guy on this team don't feel that way, we should trade him and bring somebody in that feels that [we can win a Super Bowl]. We all know what we are trying to accomplish and I feel like we have what it takes.”

Last month, Peterson told The MMQB that the Vikings can “win everything” in 2016 despite going 11–5 and losing in the wild-card game.

“We are going to have a good chance to win it this year—win everything,” Peterson told Peter King. “Sit back and watch. Sit back and watch. You can be like, ‘I thought you guys were at least a couple of years away.’ Nope. You sit back and watch, this year.”

Peterson finished last year with 327 carries for 1,485 yards and 11 touchdowns. He turned 31 years old in March.

The Vikings have lost the Super Bowl four times.
