Adrian Peterson Pleads No Contest

Finally a ruling has come down in the case of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson  on the charges of child abuse.  It appears that Peterson will plead no contest, and thus take a lesser charge and punishment.  

It looks like Peterson will face 80 hours of community service, and a hefty fine, but he will avoid jail time and a drawn out trial.  From a PR standpoint this is probably the best case scenario for the Vikings running back.  However, the overall damage to his image is already done.  

With the NFL trade deadline past, the major question becomes what will the Minnesota Vikings do with the ultra talented Peterson who is without a doubt damaged goods in the public's eyes.
