Veteran Saints WR Ted Ginn offers $10,000 to anyone who will race him
It was three years ago that Ryan Shazier beat four Steelers wide receivers in a prop race that followed an organized team activity session. During this year’s OTAs, one of the NFL’s oldest wide receivers is proposing his own sprinting exhibition.
The New Orleans Saints’ Ted Ginn told Adam Lefkoe on The Lefkoe Show podcast that he believes he’s the NFL’s fastest player. As transcribed by Pro Football Talk. Ginn challenged any takers to a $10,000 stakes race.
“Where your check at?” Ginn told Lefkoe. “I’m always down to do it. I’ve been running from light pole to light pole my whole life.”
Ginn said that while in high school he would race to make money.
