Adrian Peterson could be back in the NFL as soon as today. Peterson is set to seek reinstatement this morning.
@CNNNewsource: Adrian Peterson will seek to be reinstated to the NFL today. More details in JL-13TU on Bitcentral now.
@JosinaAnderson: Source says that the location of Adrian Peterson’s appeal hearing was switched to the Bank of America Tower in NYC as of last night.
It sounds like Pererson might have an upper hand.
Peterson contends that NFL executive V.P. of football operations Troy Vincent told Peterson that time missed on the Commissioner-Exempt list will be treated as “time served” for the purposes of his discipline under the personal conduct policy. Per multiple sources, the evidence submitted by Peterson in connection with his appeal includes a transcript of a conversation between Peterson and Vincent.
The existence of the transcript means that a conversation between Peterson and Vincent was recorded. It’s possible, but not yet confirmed, that the raw audio recording also was included in the submission by Peterson.
