Union seeks to get Peterson reinstated


EDEN PRAIRIE: The NFL Players Association has filed a grievance demanding that running back Adrian Peterson be reinstated based on a deal it says was made with commissioner Roger Goodell several weeks ago. Peterson was placed on the league’s exempt list after being indicted on felony charges of reckless or negligent injury to a child. Goodell has said the 2012 league MVP can’t play until the NFL finishes conducting its investigation under its personal conduct policy. But the players’ union said it filed an “expedited, non-injury” grievance to remove the Minnesota Vikings star from the exempt list “based on a signed agreement” from September 18.
