NFL Exec Caught on Tape Promising Light Suspension to Adrian Peterson
This is a story that I am completely disappointed with the NFL for. You suspend a player for disciplining his child? SMH.
So you all know Adrian Peterson has been suspended by the NFL for the rest of the year and his appeal has been overturned. So, Peterson had to pull the big guns out and filed a lawsuit and revealed a recording of a phone conversation between himself and NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations Troy Vincent.
In the conversation, Vincent assured Adrian just six days before his full-season suspension, that he would only be suspended for two games. In the conversation, Vincent also explained that the time Peterson spent on the commissioner's exempt list would count toward those two games and that he would be able to return to the field after that.
