Nike monitoring Adrian Peterson situation, still selling Peterson merchandise

While Nike outlets based in the Twin Cities have pulled Adrian Peterson merchandise from their shelves, the clothing and sporting goods retailer says Peterson currently remains a Nike athlete.

“Adrian Peterson remains a Nike athlete. His product continues to be available for purchase at Nike retail destinations,” the company said in a statement released to CNBC’s Jessica Golden.

“We are aware of the concerning allegations surrounding Adrian. We will continue to closely monitor the situation.”

Nike continues to sell Peterson’s jersey in their online store and, presumably, in other stores located outside the Twin Cities area. However, they are still clearly paying close attention to Peterson. They join Radisson hotels, governor Mark Dayton, senator Al Franken as entities addressing the handling of Peterson’s situation following the alleged beating of his son in a matter of attempted discipline.
