(Reuters) - "Football players don't have any clue." That was the verdict of Olympian Mike Rodgers as National Football League wide receiver DK Metcalf prepares to compete in the 100-metre sprint at Sunday's USA Track and Field (USATF) Golden Games and Distance Open in Walnut, California. The Seattle Seahawk, who posted a 4.33-second, 40-yard dash at the 2019 NFL combine, is competing in hope of earning a spot at next month's U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials.
The wide receiver apparently impressed USTAF officials with an interception chase down tackle while playing the Arizona Cardinals in October
DK Metcalf hasn't run track in some time, but a brilliant play from the 2020 NFL season shows he might have a shot at the Olympics.
