The former star claims the NFL promised him a 2-game suspension, not the indefinite ban he is now serving.
Peterson's lawyers say a November 12th phone call between Peterson and an NFL executive proves it.
The six-time All-Pro pleaded no contest with no jail time for beating his four-year-old son with a switch.
Peterson lost his suspension appeal Friday.
The lawsuit says the NFL has been inconsistent in its punishments.
