Person with knowledge of situation: Peterson, Goodell meet at NFL HQ about reinstatement

A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that Adrian Peterson has met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, regarding reinstatement of the Minnesota Vikings running back from the personal conduct policy suspension that was invoked last season.

The person spoke to the AP on Tuesday on condition of anonymity, because of the sensitivity of the information. The meeting included other representatives from each side and lasted about an hour and a half at league headquarters in New York.

This was the first time Peterson and Goodell spoke, either in person or on the phone, since the child abuse case involving Peterson’s young son arose last September.

Peterson was suspended through at least April 15.
