Minnesota Vikings star Adrian Peterson told a top NFL executive last month that he wanted Commissioner Roger Goodell to consider before suspending him that he'd already lost $4 million in endorsements and missed more than half the season.

The six-time Pro Bowl running back spoke with Troy Vincent, the league's executive vice president for football operations, in the days leading up to his suspension for the rest of 2014.

A transcript of the conversations was obtained by The Associated Press. The person gave the AP the transcripts on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to be released.

The transcripts were used as Peterson unsuccessfully tried to appeal his suspension.

Peterson called Vincent to try to get a firm idea of how many games he would be suspended. Vincent tried to convince Peterson to meet with Goodell and other NFL executives to talk about his personal progress.
