The NFL is overflowing with impossibly athletic players who can only be accurately (and politely) described as “freaks of nature.”
As a result, it takes a lot to stand out from a pack filled to the brim with guys boasting some borderline impossible physiques in a league where even the punters can put a veteran gym-goer to shame in the weight room.
However, it’s hard to think of many people who’ve managed to do exactly that to the same degree as DK Metcalf, a 6’4″, 235-pound physical specimen who simply has no business pulling off what he manages to do with ease on a regular basis.
Nothing sums up the wide receiver’s unreal abilities quite like the time he saved a touchdown by chasing down Budda Baker, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the long list of physical feats that make it hard not to be truly in awe of his talents.
In 2021, Metcalf decided to branch out a bit when he took part in the 100-meter dash at the Golden Games in the hopes of qualifying for the Olympics, and while he’s yet to achieve that goal, he can certainly hold his own with some of the best runners in the world.
His performance in that particular heat had nothing on what Tyreek Hill managed to achieve when he participated in a 60-meter race where he wiped the floor with the rest of the competition earlier this year.
However, based on what Metcalf had to say during an appearance on Undisputed on Wednesday, he’s pretty confident he could win a one-and-one showdown with Hill—and he even called out the Dolphins wide receiver for ducking his attempts to organize a race.
Here’s what he had to say:
“My people reached out to his people; just couldn’t come to an agreement. I’ve been trying to come to an agreement for two years now.
You’ve seen me run in a track meet, I didn’t race against no 30-year-olds, I raced against real track and field athletes. So whenever you want to do that and hop on the track, let me know.”
Let’s make it happen, fellas.
