Ted Ginn says he’s willing to race anyone for $10,000

Saints receiver Ted Ginn is 34 and has played 12 NFL seasons. He ran a 4.37 in the 40-yard dash at the 2007 Combine while recovering from a sprained foot and said 4.22 is the fastest he has ever run.

Ginn, though, claims he remains the NFL’s fastest player, listing Tyreek Hill, Marquise Goodwin and Damiere Byrd as worthy contenders in today’s NFL.

Ginn said on Adam Lefkoe’s show Thursday that he is willing to race anyone “pole to pole” for $10,000 or more.

Where your check at?” Ginn told Lefkoe. “I’m always down to do it. I’ve been running from light pole to light pole my whole life.”

Ginn said, as a teenager, he raced on the football field as “one of the ways” he made money. His last “fastest man in the NFL” argument came with Chris Johnson at a pool party in Miami several years ago.

No one has taken him up on his offer since he arrived in the NFL, Ginn said. It’s a good thing since the Saints probably wouldn’t take too kindly to seeing Ginn race for money.

  1. Teams want fierce competitors but have this weird delusion they’re only going to want to compete on the field… Can’t have it both ways

  2. Now thats a throwback to the Chad Johnson days! Remember when Chad raced a horse?

  3. Hopefully sucessfully holding onto a football while running isn’t part of the wager for his sake.

  4. I do believe that Ted Ginn Jr is correct. Like Darryl Green before him, he was born with it and has never lost it.
    To all the naysayers:
    Get out there and race him.
    Prove it or be quiet

  5. Instead of him challenging guys on the street I’d like to see him challenge a current professional speedster.

  6. Even in his prime, Jerry Rice was never that fast, but I still take him over Ted every time and twice on Sunday. Speed is nothing without the hands.

  7. Yeah okay Ted. I would love to see him lose $10k to Tyreek Hill or John Ross. Or maybe even Brandon Cooks.

    On another note, wouldn’t it be cool if the NFL added events like races to Pro Bowl weekend? I think everyone would tune into this. They used to have something like this but idk what happened.

    Tedd Ginn was talking about being the fastest NFL player, listing Tyreek Hill, Marquise Goodwin and Damiere Byrd as worthy contenders in today’s NFL.

    Its obvious that his $10000 bet was meant to be against NFL players.
