MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that Adrian Peterson is scheduled to meet with Minnesota Vikings GM Rick Spielman and coach Mike Zimmer in Houston on Wednesday.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because neither side was publicly discussing the process.
Peterson has been disenchanted with the Vikings after he missed almost all of last season while facing child abuse charges in Texas.
Peterson was suspended by the NFL, but a federal judge ruled last week that the arbitrator in the case erred by applying a personal conduct policy that was adopted after Peterson beat his 4-year-old son.
He has again been placed on paid leave while the NFL appeals the ruling, opening the door for the Vikings to meet with him.
USA Today first reported the scheduled meeting.
