"I don't know if he'll be back. I can't answer that question," Jennings said. "But what I do know is that if he does come back, he'd be accepted with open arms. As an organization from the Wilfs on down, we all want him back. So, I mean, it's a touchy subject and he's been the franchise player -- face of that team -- for eight years. So it will be a loss, a huge loss, if we can't get him back, and that's the nature of this business."
In November, Peterson was suspended by the league without pay for the rest of the season, making him ineligible for reinstatement until at least April 15. The move came after Peterson pleaded no contest to recklessly injuring his 4-year-old son last May. He is under contract with the Vikings for next season, and is set to earn $12.75 million.
It's unclear at this point if Jennings has talked to Zygi and Mark Wilf about the Peterson situation. What is clear is that the team is not allowed to communicate with Peterson during his suspension.
After the union field a grievance last week against the NFL over changes to the NFL personal conduct policy, Players Association president
NFL owners unanimously approved the changes in December.
"We have an agreement with the league and they have an agreement with us," Winston said, per the Associated Press. "We're going to hold them to that agreement. Many aspects of this policy fall outside of the CBA and we're going to continue fighting it going forward."
"The league's revised conduct policy was the product of a tremendous amount of analysis and work and is based on input from a broad and diverse group of experts within and outside of football, including current players, former players, and the NFL Players Association," the league said in a statement last week.
"We and the public firmly believe that all NFL personnel should be held accountable to a stronger, more effective conduct policy. Clearly, the union does not share that belief."
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.

CFL wideout Duron Carter can sign with an NFL team immediately -- he doesn't have to wait until Feb. 10 as originally thought, reports the Indianapolis Star. The Montreal Alouettes will release Carter from his contract if he agrees to terms with an NFL team, the paper said.
Carter is talking to the
The son of Hall of Fame receiver Cris Carter, Duron Carter recorded 1,939 receiving yards in two CFL seasons. The 6-4, 205-pounder reportedly drew interest from more than a dozen NFL teams.
If he lands with the Colts, Carter would join a receiving corps led by T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief, who flashed big potential as a rookie.
The NFL Players Association filed a legal brief saying Commissioner Roger Goodell's requirement that
In November, Goodell suspended Peterson without pay for the rest of the season and said the
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."
