Troy Vincent wasn’t on the witness list for Tuesday’s hearing in the Adrian Peterson appeal. Vincent is now.
Per a league source, Harold Henderson has ruled that Vincent must testify in the case.
The ruling comes after the NFL Players Association submitted on Peterson’s behalf a transcript and audiotape of conversations between Peterson and Vincent, during which Vincent allegedly said that Peterson would get credit for “time served” while suspended with pay, and that the new domestic violence policy would not apply retroactively.
Vincent could testify as soon as Thursday. Don’t be shocked if the case settles before then. According to the source, Henderson has encouraged the parties to try to resolve the case. For the league office, a settlement will be the only way to keep Vincent from having to testify.
