Some of the NFL's quickest players will lace up and compete in a 40-yard race.
Some of the NFL's quickest players will compete in a 40-yard race on June 29, according to NFL reporter Dov Kleiman.
Among the participants are the Saints' Alvin Kamara and Ted Ginn, the Bears' Tarik Cohen, the Jets' Robby Anderson, the Ravens' Mark Ingram, the Vikings Trae Waynes, the Redskins' Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, the Titans' Kevin Byard and the Cardinals' Budda Baker. The race will be hosted by 40 Yards of Gold, an organization dedicated to showcasing speed in football.
Here's how each of those players fared when they ran the 40-yard dash at the NFL scouting combine:
|Name||40-yard dash time||Combine Year|
*Ginn didn't run at the combine, so the range of times comes from a pre-draft workout.
The nine players above do not represent the full list of participants; you can find a more complete list at the 40 Yards of Gold website.
Ted Ginn, who claims he has run a 4.22 40-yard dash before, recently proclaimed he's the fastest receiver in the NFL and that he's willing to challenge anyone to a race for $10,000.
