Vikings' Adrian Peterson to begin probation on Wednesday

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6:25 pm ET) Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will begin his probation on Wednesday, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Peterson will begin community service, and will undergo counseling to determine whether he has a drug problem. Peterson will report to a probation officer once a month in order to take a drug test. The strict drug testing stems from an Oct. 8 pre-trail urinalysis. Peterson admitted to "smoking a little weed," though the results from the test were never disclosed. 

Probation officials will also determine whether Peterson needs to attend parenting classes. 

Per his plea agreement, Peterson was fined $4,000 and ordered to perform 80 hours of community service. He's required to perform at least 16 hours per month, which would allow him to complete to program prior to training camp.

Peterson is under contract with the Vikings for next season, and is set to earn $12.75 million. The team is not allowed to communicate with Peterson during his suspension. 

Union challenges Goodell on Adrian Peterson's counseling requirement

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/27/15) The NFL Players Association filed a legal brief saying Commissioner Roger Goodell's requirement that Adrian Peterson attend counseling was unlawful, reports ESPN.com. The union claims Goodell's disciplinary powers don't extend past suspensions, fines and contract terminations to counseling, the report said.

In November, Goodell suspended Peterson without pay for the rest of the season and said the Vikings running back cannot be reinstated until at least April 15. The move came after Peterson pleaded no contest to recklessly injuring his 4-year-old son last May.

In his letter to Peterson, Goodell set several requirements for reinstatement, including counseling.

"In order to assess your progress going forward, I will establish periodic reviews, the first of which will be on or about April 15, 2015," the commisssioner wrote. "At that time, I will meet with you and your representatives and the NFLPA to review the extent to which you have complied with your program of counseling and therapy and both made and lived up to an affirmative commitment to change such that this conduct will not occur again. A failure to cooperate and follow your plan will result in a lengthier suspension without pay."

Due to contract, Adrian Peterson era in Minny 'may be over'

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/20/15) Both Vikings coach Mike Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman have said they want running back Adrian Peterson back next season, but his run in Minnesota "may be over, and it has more to do with his contract than his legal issues," reports the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Peterson, who turns 30 in two months, carries a cap hit of $15.4 million in 2015. In an interview with ESPN, Peterson "scoffed at the suggestion that he take a pay cut to remain with the Vikings," the paper noted. "Can he and the Vikings find common ground? Or is Peterson ready for a fresh start elsewhere?"

Currently suspended, Peterson can apply for NFL reinstatement on April 15. He pleaded no contest to recklessly injuring his 4-year-old son, a misdemeanor, last May.

Vikings GM Rick Spielman wants Adrian Peterson back

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/15/15) Vikings general manager Rick Spielman wants to have running back Adrian Peterson back, according to the Star Tribune

"I don’t know if there’s a team in the NFL that wouldn’t want Adrian Peterson on the football team," Spielman said. "I know that Adrian is a good person, just being around him. I know he’s done a lot of good in this community." 

Peterson is eligible to apply for reinstate through the league on April 15. He played just one game in 2014 after news of a child abuse charge broke. Peterson was initially placed on the exempt list, but was eventually suspended after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor charge. Peterson appealed the ruling, but the suspension was upheld. 

Spielman expects no dropoff from the 29-year-old Peterson when he's able to return. "He’s going to play at a very high level when he comes back. I’m anticipating that." 

Zimmer will still try to convince Adrian Peterson to return to Vikings

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/7/15) Vikings coach Mike Zimmer understands if running back Adrian Peterson does not want to return to Minnesota once he is reinstated from his suspension. But that still won't stop Zimmer from trying to convince Peterson to remain with the team, according to Pro Football Talk.

"I would respect Adrian’s decision," Zimmer said while appearing on Pro Football Talk Live with Mike Florio. "I’ll always be honest with him and up front, but I’m gonna try to explain to him the reasons why I would like to him to be here.

"But it has to be a two way street and he has to get his life taken care of -- but we’ll sit down and talk, but I’m a pretty good recruiter, too.”
