If you ask pretty much anyone about Adrian Peterson -- including this blog's proprietor -- you will get a story about shaking hands and nearly getting your puny hand crushed by his strong, massive grip. We don't even think Peterson does it on purpose. It's just how his hands are. Which makes the fumbling all the more strange and frustrating. But we digress.
We were out at Winter Park for rookie minicamp for a while today, and you can officially add 2nd-round pick and fellow running back Toby Gerhart to the mix of players who has felt the wrath of the Purple Jesus handshake. From Gerhart, who was asked if he has talked to or met Peterson since being drafted:
"No I have not. ... I met him at the Super Bowl just briefly. I shook his hand and he about broke my hand."
