[Editor’s note: The NFL issued a statement regarding Vikings running back Adrian Peterson on Thursday, November 6. The full content of the statement appears below.]
The NFL advised Adrian Peterson this afternoon that following his plea agreement to resolve his criminal case in Texas his matter will now be reviewed for potential discipline under the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy.
As part of the process, the NFL has requested that Peterson submit relevant information regarding his case and meet with designated experts who will make recommendations for the Commissioner’s consideration. Peterson also will have the opportunity to have a hearing prior to the issuance of any discipline.
Pending completion of the process, Peterson’s status on the Reserve/Commissioner Exempt list will remain unchanged.
