As you read in the title, Adrian Peterson wants to put on at least 10 pounds!

I have asked questions to my friends on this topic, and only four out of 12 people I have asked said no.

Here are my believes.

If Peterson puts on weight, I say he will be able to run right through people. But the down side. If he puts weight on, he will be slower unless it is ALL muscle.

Last year, Peterson had around 1,780 yards, led the league in rushing, and will be a future catcher.

He has blocking potential if he does put on the weight. 

Those are my reasons. See my point? Feel free to comment below.
