Ted Ginn Jr. is getting his wish.
About a week ago, Ginn boldly claimed himself the fastest receiver in the NFL and offered a standing $10,000 bet for anyone wishing to race him – anytime, anywhere.
Now Ginn will get a chance to prove his speed in 40 Yards of Gold, a 40-yard dash tournament featuring the fastest players in football, as voted on by fans. The contestants will run parallel 40-yard dashes in a bracket-style competition.
Here's a list of some of the NFL players who will be competing:
Former Buckeye linebacker Jerome Baker is also among the list of contestants fans can vote for to appear in the competition. The top-8 on each side of the ball are guaranteed to run in the competition.
The event will take place on June 29 with opening round matchups beginning on May 26.
