Adrian Peterson Enters Plea Deal En Route To NFL Return
The NFL "will not speculate on a timetable" regarding any reinstatement for the Vikings running back, however, the fact that he's entered a plea deal for the far less severe sounding charge of reckless assault means he won't serve jail time and thus, could be back on a field by the end of the 2014 NFL season.
[ESPN] If Judge Kelly Case accepts the plea, Peterson will be placed on probation, pay a $2,000 fine and perform 80 hours of community service, according to ProFootballTalk.com.
Preliminary estimates suggest Goodell will hand down a decision next week once a punishment has been decided upon by the courts, the assumption being that a misdemeanor conviction will merit a lesser punishment for Peterson, who has already missed eight games without pay. Whatever happens, though, we expect everyone to get really upset about it for around a week until they remember how much fun it is to watch AP run with a football in his monstrous, powerful hands.
