Cardinals’ Robert Gill runs 25 mph

As a 29-year-old who has never played in the NFL, Cardinals receiver Robert Gill is unlikely to make the regular-season roster. But he’s getting plenty of attention this week.

At a time when NFL fans are looking for anything other than Aaron Hernandez to talk about, a video of Gill getting on a treadmill and running 25 miles per hour has gone viral. Suffice to say, Gill running on a treadmill looks a whole lot different than the guys at your gym running on the treadmill.

Danton Barto, who coached Gill in Arena Football, told the Cardinals’ website that Deion Sanders is the only player he’s ever seen whose speed compares to Gill’s.

Gill isn’t exactly a record setter — Usain Bolt has been clocked at faster than 27 mph — but he has to be among the fastest players in the NFL. Although Michael Scott would insist that he can run faster.

Here’s the video:

  1. Cute. How fast is he in pads and cleats on a football field with a bunch of other guys trying to tackle him?

  2. that was nuts.

    but still,, having the ground pulled from under you at 25 mph is a lot different that making your body move across the earth at 25 mph.

    still, that was nuts.

  4. As a former track athlete and track coach, I came on here to declare that this guy can not run a sub-9 second 100 meter dash (Do the math: 60/25 = 2.4 minutes per mile… /16 to get what is ~ a 100 meter dash [~1600 meters in a mile], = .15 of a minute… also known as 9 seconds. Bolt’s record is 9.58)

    …and then I see that it was on a treadmill, which does all of the forward propulsion for you. That means that you’re turnover is what matters and the only power you need is for stability, not to actually push your body forward.

    The guy’s obviously fast, but saying that you ran 25 MPH on a treadmill is like me saying I benched 1200 lbs on the moon.

  5. Yeah tinbender, lots of people are faster than us. There are people that are faster than this guy too, so I’m not sure what your point is.

  6. He need the Six Million Dollar Man sound effects and music on this video to make it perfect.

  7. What’s the big deal? I can drive my car in reverse faster than that.

    JK

    Makes me want to jump on my treadmill and see how fast I can run. Except my treadmill only goes to 10 mph.

  8. Even though running on a treadmill is far different than running on actual ground I think most people have to admit his leg speed is incredible.

    There might be a couple players faster than Gill, but if there are it’s a few at most. This guy’s fast. What was the point of your first post again?

  10. But was he able to generate the 1.21 jigowatts of power needed to operate the flux capacitor?

  11. In the bible ,Asahel king Davids nephew,it is stated he could outrun a deer ,Josephus stated of him that he outran a horse,even by current statistics horses and deer run somewhere in the 45-50 mph range , which is almost twice the speed of the fastest human sprints let alone distance oh and as the media is so fond of inciting hate crimes against white people at every possible opportunity ,Asahel was a white guy ! This is the word of God which can be trusted implicitly, as opposed to the current communist opinions put forth by a lying press

  12. If I tried that, you’d be seeing a guy smashed up against the wall behind the treadmill on one of those epic fail videos on Youtube.

    That, sir, is the winning post of the day. +1 awesome points

    /sarcasm off

  14. bluebongzilla – his point is that calling something “cute” that you and most players in the NFL can’t do is the exact definition of a hater.

    Now go play before someone shoves you into a locker.

  15. That was impressive, and this really doesn’t matter except to nerds like myself but…
    I doubt it was 25 mph while he was on it.
    When you jump on those things they slow down quite a bit and it takes a little while to adjust, by which time he jumped off.
