John Ross Breaks Chris Johnson's NFL Combine Record In The 40-Yard Dash

Wide receiver John Ross of the University of Washington just made history at the NFL Combine. He ran a blistering 4.22 seconds in the 40-yard dash, breaking Chris Johnson’s 2008 combine record of 4.24 seconds.
Watch the record-breaking sprint in the video below.

Rich Eisen has gotta be green with envy. That was such an effortless gait too. Ross looked more like a goddamn gazelle than a football player. Ross won’t be getting an island from Adidas, though, as he was rocking Nike cleats. Via Sports Illustrated:

Earlier in the week, Adidas was offering to buy an island to any NFL prospect that broke Johnson’s record while wearing the 2017 Adizero 5-Star 40 cleats. The player also has to agree to endorse the company’s shoes for the 2017-18 season. Ross was wearing Nike cleats and signed with the sportswear giant shortly after the run.
“I can’t swim that well,” Ross said of why he didn’t run in Adidas cleats. β€œAnd I don’t own a boat.”

While it sucks that he missed out on some exotic real estate, Ross did nab a Nike endorsement for his efforts.

Not a bad haul for 4.22 seconds of work.
