John Ross breaks NFL Combine 40-yard dash record, doesn’t win free island

Move aside Chris Johnson, we have history at the NFL Combine.

On Saturday morning, Washington wide receiver John Ross ran an unofficial 4.22 40-yard dash, breaking Johnson’s record of 4.24 which he ran in 2008.

The crazy part is that on the NFL Network broadcast, Ross told broadcaster Michael Irvin that he cramped up at the beginning of the run.

Regardless, the buzz spread across the internet, where even Johnson himself weighed in.

Of course while the record is impressive, it leads to another interesting question: Earlier this week, Adidas offered to buy an island — yes, a literal island — to any player who broke the Combine record. However, the one catch to the deal was that they had to be wearing Adidas shoes.

Unfortunately for Ross, he was wearing Nikes. Meaning that if he wants to visit any island, it will have to be on his own dime like the rest of us.

Still, even without an island, it’s safe to say Ross has had a weekend to remember in Indianapolis.
