In today's NFL, there is a ridiculous amount of talent. Arm strength, elusiveness, leaping ability, you name it-- it's all there. And as further proof that there is no actual offseason, a much-discussed 40-yard dash competition is now becoming reality. And it's as ridiculous as it sounds.
Retired wide receiver Chad Johnson will be hosting the $1 Million "40 Yards of Gold" contest. Listed below are the first-round matchups in this knockout competition, which include the likes of Alvin Kamara vs. Robby Anderson and Ted Ginn Jr. against Jacoby Ford.
That's some insane speed up and down that bracket.
As you see, the tournament will be split between offense and defense, where the winner of each side will meet in the finals for the coveted $1 million grand prize. Not only that, but the victor receives the "Pro Football's Fastest Man" moniker, which will surely continue to be debated endlessly regardless of what actually happens here.
