NFLPA proposal would give players credit for time served

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Adrian Peterson’s best hope to get back on a football field quickly could be if the NFL is willing to credit the time he’s already spent on the commissioner’s exempt list as part of his discipline for his Sept. 12 arrest. The NFL Players Association soon hopes to make that practice a core principle of the league’s personal conduct policy.

According to a proposal the union made to the league late last month, players facing violent crime allegations would receive credit for time served if they agree to a voluntary leave of absence while their legal matter is being adjudicated.
