Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, who is meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to discuss his reinstatement with the league, says he wants to get on with his life and start a new chapter.
In an interview with ESPN’s Josina Anderson, the controversial former NFL MVP – who is serving the final two weeks for a suspension for violating league conduct policies for his September arrest for child abuse – said he’s ready to move on.
“I am anxious to start a new chapter and get on with the rest of my life,” Peterson said. ProFootballTalk reported that Peterson added that he’s eager to share what he and his family went through while he was out of football last year.
Peterson was arrested in September and charged with child abuse of his 4-year-old son – reportedly beating him with a switch until the boy’s backside and/or legs were bloodied – but pleaded no contest to the charges and was sentenced to probation. Afterwards, the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell slapped Peterson with a one-year suspension that is scheduled to end on April 15.
Notably, Peterson did not address the rumors that he was seeking a departure from the Minnesota Vikings to join either the Dallas Cowboys or even the Arizona Cardinals.
