Adrian Peterson Reinstated to the NFL and the Vikings
It is official. After months of being on the Commissioners Exempt List, Adrian Peterson has been reinstated to the NFL.
The league announced the decision on Thursday afternoon, with Peterson being officially reinstated as of Friday. He will be allowed to participate in Minnesota Vikings offseason programs.
Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a press release that Peterson still has to cooperate with authorities in Minnesota and Texas, and that he could be suspended without pay or even banished from the NFL with any violation to the Personal Conduct Policy.
Whether Peterson actually goes back to Minnesota is still to be determined. In a statement released today, the Vikings said that they look forward to Peterson re-joining the team. No statement from Peterson has been released as of this point.
