MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Adrian Peterson continues to make headlines, two days after the NFL decided to deny his appeal and keep him suspended.

Now, the former MVP has reportedly told ESPN he’s planning to file a lawsuit against the NFL, and if the lawsuit doesn’t work he may retire.

A source tells the Associated Press that the Peterson lawsuit could be filed as soon as Monday in federal court in Minneapolis.

Peterson is suspended until April after pleading no contest to hitting his four-year-old son with a switch.

Hamline University law professor David Schultz joined Esme Murphy on WCCO Sunday Morning to talk about Peterson’s legal options.

“He’s going to be arguing — in some way, shape or form — some type of breach of contract, or some violation of federal labor law covered by the collective bargaining agreement,” said Schultz, referring to the lawsuit.

So, is there any shot of a significant development in the coming week?

“I think there is,” Schultz said.
