On the same night the Minnesota Vikings created a market for the No. 3 overall draft pick -- which they eventually traded to the Cleveland Browns for fourth-, fifth- and seventh-round picks -- and drafted offensive tackle Matt Kalil and safety Harrison Smith, the team revealed positive news about a player who should impact its season more than any rookie.
"Adrian looked out and saw the guys doing wind sprints and he says, 'Ya know, I don't think they're running hard enough,' " Fraizer said. "And Eric allowed him to go out and run with them. And he passed them four different times. He finished first four different times. I remember Joe Webb saying, 'I can't believe it. I just can't believe it.' "
It's another encouraging sign that Peterson could be back to his old form this season, despite suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Week 15 of the 2011 season. Peterson has indicated that his goal is to be ready to play in the Vikings' season opener -- Sept. 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Frazier said the next step in Peterson's rehab is for him to get to the point when he can cut.
