Vikings Ronnie Hillman 'Not Replacing Adrian Peterson'

Vikings Ronnie Hillman 'Not Replacing Adrian Peterson' ... 'I'm Gonna Be Me'

EXCLUSIVE

Ronnie Hillman's NOT going to the Vikings to fill the shoes of future HOFer Adrian Peterson ... he's goin' to help them win a Super Bowl, the newly signed RB tells TMZ Sports.

We talked to Hillman -- who was signed in the wake of reports that Peterson needs surgery and could miss the rest of the season -- about stepping in for one of the greatest backs of all-time.

"I'm not here to replace anyone. I'm just here to be me," Hillman told us. "I'm excited. It's a fresh start for me. I'm here to do whatever they ask me to do. Run, catch. Whatever I can."

Hillman -- who hasn't played a down of football this season -- says he's not thinking about whether he'll strap 'em up this week in Carolina ... 'cause his full concentration's on mastering the Vikings playbook.

As for joining a squad with Super Bowl aspirations ... R.H. says that was one of the main things that attracted him to the Vikes.

"It's always good to play on a team that wants to win the Super Bowl. Everyone works hard."
