Adrian Peterson ‘Highly Unlikely’ to Face Further Suspension

Minnesota Vikings v Detroit Lions

With Adrian Peterson’s reinstatement meeting with Commissioner Roger Goodell in the rear-view mirror, questions still remain regarding his future with the Vikings.

One thing we do know is that Peterson is unlikely to face further sanctions from the league. Ian Rapoport told NFL Total Access on Tuesday that Peterson is “highly unlikely” to face further suspension when he finally comes off the Commissioner’s Exempt List, according to a source.

The star running back now just wants a clean slate.

“Peterson wants to have a completely clean slate by the draft,” Rapoport said. “His point: The Minnesota Vikings have held strong in saying they do not plan on trading Adrian Peterson. They believe he will play for them in 2015. In fact, they want him to play for either them or no one else.

“However, if they are to be tempted with a trade,” Rapoport said, “it is going to come at the time of the draft and Peterson wants to make sure there are no obstacles to him getting on the field in 2015, just in case another team decides to come calling — maybe like the Cardinals, maybe like the Cowboys.”
