DeAngelo Hall denies slapping Adrian Peterson

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson said after Sunday’s loss that Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall slapped him in the face following a tackle early in the game.

Hall was asked about Peterson’s allegation during a Monday conference call and he had a very different take on what happened. Hall said the only thing close to what Peterson described was a play when Hall made a tackle and then pushed off either the ground or Peterson. Hall says Peterson told him “That’s a good play” after that tackle and that he’s not sure what else Peterson might be talking about.

“I have no idea what he’s talking about,” Hall said, via Mark Maske of the Washington Post. “You guys can watch the film. You’ve watched the film. Once you heard it, you were probably like, ‘Huh? What’s he talking about?’ I think you all know me. So if anything would happen involving me, I think all you guys would have been jumping on that story right after the game. So for it to be brought up a day later and talking about I slapped him in the face, that’s just asinine.”

That’s pretty much that. The Redskins and Vikings don’t play again this season unless they meet in the playoffs and making that happen requires both teams to keep their eyes on things other than an alleged slap that had no bearing on the outcome of the game.

    Good timing for Hall, considering he himself will be slapped by Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks this week.

    Keep you pimp hand strong player…

    All In.

    I believe Hall. Any mammal would have enough basic self-preservation instincts that would prevent them from slapping Adrian Peterson.

    RG3 is going to make Cruz and Nicks useless
