    "Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has been reinstated after U.S. District Court Judge David Doty ruled Thursday in the NFL Players Association's lawsuit against the NFL on Peterson's behalf.

    As a result of the ruling, the Vikings might now be forced to make a decision on Peterson sooner rather than later. They can release or try to restructure his contract now, and also will be free to trade him once the league year begins March 10.

    There also was uncertainty as to Peterson's future with the Vikings after his agent, Ben Dogra, had to be separated from Vikings vice president Rob Brzezinski during a heated exchange at the NFL scouting combine last week, sources told ESPN.

    It is the latest blow to the NFL and commissioner Roger Goodell, who has watched his rulings against Peterson and Ray Rice both overturned in recent months."



    Probably will not be back with the Vikings. Who will take him? The Browns? The Raiders? They could really use a productive RB to get back on the map with wins.

    Yeah I wonder where he will go in the average fantasy league draft this year. Guessing it depends where he goes to.

    I had him on my ff team (bench) half of last year. Every time I started to drop him, news would say he was coming back.

    I finally just gave up the ghost on him. :(

    Curious to see where he will end up...

    HE will wind up in Dallas, with that other perp, Dez.

    Sadly, behind their O-line, he would be amazing.

    Jerry Jones will pick him up for the Cowgirls. They can't keep Murray and who knows what's up with Dez Bryant (alleged) video. Look for Peterson to be in Dallas.

    Seems a bit odd to me that the courts have so much say in the disciplinary tactics of a private corporation, though I suppose the anti-trust exemptions and tax breaks they receive have made the government something of a partner.

    Goodell getting owned makes me smile. He's gonna make the game unwatchable to old school fans.

    Im going to look at this a different way. This ruling, and the one for Ray Rice lets Goodell off the hook. When people start to scream that these two thugs are back on the field, he going to say "I tried to keep them off the field, but was told by the courts that I can't do that. Don't blame me, I tried".

    It might make him look like that, but we know what he wanted and what he got. Two big names/players back.

    Just in time to start fading due to age. (see Steven Jackson)

    I'd say he wants out. Minny is going nowhere. Why waste away there. Dallas, Detroit, etc are places that need a RB and are going in the right direction.

    Yeah getting up their in age, sports wise as I think he'll be 30, but I still think he can make an impact with a good team for a few years.
