Adrian Peterson won the ruling by Judge David Doty that the NFL improperly applied their personal conduct policy to his suspension last season. Unfortunately for Peterson, the NFL appealed the judge’s decision and he’s back on the commissioner’s exempt list for now. According to Ian Rapoport, Peterson is scheduled to meet with NFL officials this week to discuss reinstatement.

The Vikings have expressed intent to keep the running back on the team in spite of reports from his agent that he doesn’t feel he belongs with the team any longer and would like a trade. The idea that Peterson feels as though he was slighted somehow by the Vikings and is entitled to change teams now is a bit comical to me. Looks like it will all play out very soon, though.
