The Adrian Peterson appeal hearing started Tuesday. It ends Thursday.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the session resumes at 2:30 p.m. ET, barring a negotiated settlement. On Tuesday, arbitrator Harold Henderson urged the two sides to work out a deal.
There’s a chance that one side or the other has been emboldened by the suggestion, especially if one side perceives that holding firm will result in a victory.
If the hearing proceeds, NFL executive V.P. of football operations Troy Vincent will be testifying regarding his conversations with Peterson. The recorded discussions allegedly contain Vincent telling Peterson that he’d receive credit for games missed while on paid suspension, and that the new domestic violence policy unveiled on August 28 wouldn’t be applied to him retroactively.
