Ted Ginn Jr. Believes He's the Fastest Receiver in the NFL, Offers $10,000 Bet For Anyone Wanting to Race

Ted Ginn Jr. thinks he's the fastest receiver in the NFL today, and he's putting his money where his mouth is.

Appearing on Bleacher Report's The Lefkoe Show, Ginn called himself the fastest player in the league and told Adam Lefkoe he would race anyone and everyone, as long as they're ready to wager $10,000 or better.

Ginn said in his high school days, he made a bit of money racing a guy named Mace on the local football field. He said they'd wager about $100 a race, and Ginn ended up taking $200-$300 from him.

The stakes are a little higher now, but Ginn said he'd never back down if he was challenged.

"I'm always down to do it," Ginn said. "I've been running from light pole to light pole my whole life."

Ginn said nobody has ever taken him up on the offer, but he did get into a heated argument with former NFL running back Chris Johnson, who held the longstanding NFL combine 40-yard dash record of 4.24 seconds, until John Ross topped that in 2018.

Ginn ran a 4.37 at Ohio State's pro day 2007, but says the fastest he's ever been clocked is 4.22 on the field at Penn State.

You can watch the entire interview above, where Ginn talks about his kickoff return in the 2007 National Championship Game, his time as a corner at Ohio State and playing for Jim Harbaugh.
