NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport joined us for his weekly Wednesday hit to break down the latest news regarding Adrian Peterson’s suspension and more.
Rapoport said there’s no precedent for this situation with Adrian Peterson. Nobody really knew what to do.
Rapoport did hear the same thing that Peterson and his attorney heard as far as being credited for time served while on the commissioner’s exempt list. However, Rapoport said they took into account time served and still handed down the season long suspension.
“I was told [Peterson] would get some sort of credit to his suspension for being on the exempt list and missing games,” Rapoport said. “And what the NFL says is he did receive credit for that.”
One of the issues, Rapoport said, is that Roger Goodell is judge, jury and executioner and that’s outlined in the CBA that was agreed upon by the NFLPA.
Right now, Rapoport said it’s no sure thing that Peterson will be a member of the Vikings next season.
