Do you think there would be any interest? Obviously, more than speed is needed to be a successful WR or kick returner, but do you think all 30 teams would show interest?

if i am not mistaken there are many players who can almot go stride for stride with him.. florida gator's chris rainey for example ran the same time as him (pretty srs).

he hasent taken hits or caught balls his entire life.. as such, i dont believe he would be an asset..

Almost !== The Same

In the NFL, almost as fast misses by a finger tip

Chris Rainey ran the same 100m time as the man that shattered the world record?

Running in a straight line /= making the proper cuts while keeping speed with pads on in an NFL game.

I'm sure Al Davis would take a strong look though.

Justin Gatlin was the previous fastest man in the world. He didn't do too well when teams tried him out in the NFL.

Why not baseball?
Just bunt the damn ball and run to 1st.
Steal 2nd
Steal 3rd
In scoring position b4 you know it.

He would make alot more money playing baseball than football.

First of all...not everyone can bunt 90+ MPH fast balls.

3rd who the hell is going to put a guy like that at DH? Or do you expect him to play defense too?

Strong thought out post!

lmao...are you f*cking serious?

How about -
knows how to play football?
knows how to catch the ball?
knows how to beat a jam by a corner?
knows how to run routes?

...there is a lot more to playing football than just being fast or tall. The guy would get man handled by 5'8 corners.

A lot of teams would be interested. Definitely a good marketing tool if you have him on your team.
