Adrian Peterson: 'I've considered retiring from the NFL'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson plans to file a lawsuit against the league after his suspension was upheld by arbitrator Harold Henderson Friday, and he could retire from the NFL if his lawsuit puts his chance for reinstatement at risk, ESPN.com reports.

"I've considered retiring from the NFL," Peterson said. "I still made $8 million dollars this year. ... I love playing football, don't get me wrong, but this situation is deeper than that. For me, it's like, 'Why should I continue to be a part of an organization or a business that handles players the way they do?'"

Peterson indicated that he's thought about "getting back into real estate" or "going after the Olympics," competing in the 200- and 400-meter dashes. He is suspended by the league until at least April 2015 after being indicted by a grand jury in September for recklessly injuring his four-year-old son while disciplining him.

NFL denies Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's appeal
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson's suspension has been upheld on appeal, the NFL announced Friday.

"I conclude that the player has not demonstrated that the process and procedures surrounding his discipline were not fair and consistent," appeals officer Harold Henderson said in a statement released by the league. "He was afforded all the protections and rights to which he is entitled, and I find no basis to vacate or reduce the discipline."

Peterson was placed on the commissioner's exempt list on Sept. 17 after he was arrested on a charge of recklessly injuring his 4-year-old son. After pleading no contest to misdemeanor charges on Nov. 4, commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Peterson for the remainder of the season.

The NFLPA released the following statement following Peterson's denied appeal: "The NFLPA expected this outcome, given the hearing officer's relationship and financial ties to the NFL. The decision itself ignores the facts, the evidence and the collective bargaining agreement. This decision also represents the NFL's repeated failure to adhere to due process and confirms its inconsistent treatment of players. Our union is considering immediate legal remedies."

According to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora, Peterson will likely take the case to federal court in hopes of being reinstated before April 15, 2015, the start of the NFL calendar.

Report: Arbiter encourages settlement for Peterson suspension
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

While arbiter Harold Henderson is scheduled to hear testimony from NFL executive vice president for football operations Troy Vincent on Thursday regarding running back Adrian Peterson's indefinite suspension, Henderson encouraged the NFL and NFLPA to negotiate a settlement, according to ESPN.

However, a source said there have been no offers exchanged.

"In our view, the league would have to show a level of reason and humility to present a settlement offer that would be acceptable," an NFLPA source said Wednesday morning. "Thus far, they have displayed neither."

Henderson ordered Vincent to testify after the union submitted an audio recording and transcript of a phone conversation between Vincent and Peterson. 

Vincent allegedly told Peterson his time on the commissioner's exempt list would be considered time served and that he would be suspended two additional games. He would also not be subjected to the new personal conduct policy on domestic violence -- mandating a six-game suspension without pay -- if he attended a Nov. 14 disciplinary hearing with Roger Goodell. Peterson declined to attend the November hearing with Goodell. It is unknown if Vincent made the offer or had the authority to do so.

Adrian Peterson making case for reinstatement
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The appeal hearing for Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is underway in Manhattan, reports the New York Times. Peterson's reps are making his case for immediate reinstatement to Harold Henderson, the NFL's former vice president of labor relations.

Peterson pleaded no contest to misdemeanor reckless assault for hurting his 4-year-old son with a wooden switch. Under the league's personal conduct policy, commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Peterson for the rest of the season and said he won't be considered for reinstatement before April 15.

Goodell picked Henderson to hear the appeal. The players association asked Henderson to recuse himself, but he declined.
