MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Vikings have been taking advantage of their opportunity to communicate with Adrian Peterson.

General manager Rick Spielman said Monday the organization has had "open dialogue" with the star running back since the NFL tabled his suspension and returned him to the special exempt list where he spent much of the 2014 season while the child abuse case he was involved in played out in court.

The league made that move Thursday after U.S. District Judge David Doty overruled the arbitrator who denied Peterson's appeal. Under his suspension, the Vikings weren't allowed to have direct contact. Now they're able to - for the time being. That's critical with the NFL's transactions period starting March 10.
