PFT Live: Hines Ward, Vikings talk with Matt Vensel

Late Night with Seth Meyers - Season 2 Getty Images

Running back Adrian Peterson returned to the Vikings fold on Tuesday, ending an exile from the team that started when he was charged with child abuse last September.

Peterson has been free to return to the team since the middle of April, but stayed away from workouts as he tried to shake loose some more guaranteed money over the final two years of a contract that currently has no guaranteed cash. On Tuesday, though, Peterson said it was time to move forward and Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune will join Mike Florio on PFT Live to discuss where that forward movement will take Peterson and the team.

Hines Ward of Football Night in America will also join Florio during the show to take a run through all of the biggest stories in the NFL at the moment.
