    Let's try out Usain Bolt

    The kid runs the 100m in 3 seconds less than a Cheetah.

    Yes good catch.

    Ok hear me out. Only sign him to return kicks. It's relatively running a straight line. Kick return specialist only. No running back functions. Pay him $500,000 - $700,000 to do this for 4 months out of his year. In his country that's a lot of money. Who says he wouldn't take that tryout, if offered? And his exposure would increase dramatically, which seems to be a goal of his also

    As opposed to the other slowpokes in the race, who run it 2.996 seconds less than a cheetah?

    Why can't we just try out the cheetah?

    You obviously have no idea how much Bolt makes. he is one of the highest endorsed athletes in the world. he can go to Japan and run a race, and the event organizers will pay him like 2 mill.

    You want him to put his body in jeopardy for 5 months for 700K?

    Hahaha too funny. I guess people think his Puma deal only includes free spikes.

    Indeed. Plus, it's hard to see how much more exposure he can get - he's one of the highest profile, highest paid, and most endorsed athletes in the world. No way he's going to risk that to run back kicks for the NFL minimum. He's just going to keep lowering world records and earning himself $10M+ every time he does it.

    I agree 1,000%! I mean, he's probably like a 99 speed in Madden!

    Sign the beast!
