The standoff appears to be over. Adrian Peterson is returning to Minnesota.

The All-Pro running back, who was cleared from a suspension two months ago only to enter a contentious situation with the only organization he’s ever played for, has shown up to work out with his teammates this week. Peterson and head coach Mike Zimmer will hold a media press conference at 2:30 p.m. local time.

ESPN first reported the news of Peterson’s return.

The 30-year-old, who missed almost all of last season after being indicted on reckless or negligent injury to a child, might have seen the end of his rope in terms of leverage. Peterson was placed on the Commissioner’s Exempt List last September and then in November was suspended for the remainder of the 2014 season.
