Nike & Adrian Peterson: No More

Nike & Adrian Peterson: No More
Adrian Peterson

Nike has terminated its contract with Adrian Peterson, a spokesman for the brand confirmed Thursday.

This comes as the Minnesota Vikings running back issued a no-contest plea this week to one count of misdemeanor reckless assault on his four-year-old son.

The Swoosh previously suspended Peterson’s contract on Sept. 17, and he has not been paid for endorsements since then.

The football player is the fourth athlete in 2014 — after Ray Rice, Oscar Pistorius and Jon Jones — to lose a contract with Nike.
