Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf is fast. Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill is fast. There is no denying either statement, but being known as one of the fastest players in the NFL is not enough for either player.
They want to prove they are No. 1 when it comes to speed.
The two wide receivers have gone back and forth before on who would win in a race, and they are back at it again after Metcalf said that he has been trying to race Hill for quite some time. The issue, according to Metcalf, is that Hill's people want to have the race in July, just before training camp.
"I've been trying to come to an agreement for two years now," Metcalf said on "Skip and Shannon: Undisputed." "Just hasn't worked out."
Hill quickly responded via social media. Based on Hill's comments, it appears he would like to settle the issue of who is faster sooner rather than later.
This time last year, the two frequently challenged each other about having a race, calling the other one out for not having as much speed.
When asked if he could outrun "Cheetah," Metcalf shook his head yes and said:
"I got a different type of speed ... There's Cheetah speed and I got DK speed, and that's just me."
Hill responded, saying, "Put up 50K and the money goes to any charity you want if you win !! I DM you and you was scared. I got receipts."
Metcalf topped out at 22.64 mph during the well-known chase down of Arizona Cardinals safety Budda Baker in 2021.
When it comes to 40 times, Hill has the advantage. Hill ran a 4.29 in the 40-yard-dash, while Metcalf ran a 4.33.
, and we will not know for sure who is the fastest until we get a one-on-one race, which seems like it may never happen.
