There was a little snippet in the latest Sporting News magazine that named off the 5 people who will bring immediate improvement to whatever team they wind up on. The 5th name on that list was Peterson. In this snippet, Shaun Alexander gave rousing endorsements to Peterson saying that he envisions Peterson as the next HB to reach the 2,000 yard plateau. Take this for what it's worth, however LaDanian Tomlinson said something very similar to this, saying that he thinks Peterson will be on his level. I'd certainly take those reccomendations any day of the week.
