When Chris Johnson ran the 40-yard dash back in 4.24 seconds at the 2008 NFL scouting combine, it was basically incredible to watch. Fortunately, if you’re a speedy NFL prospect heading to the combine, you will now have a chance to take home $1 million before you even get drafted.
According to Nate Scott of For The Win, Adidas has agreed to pay anyone who can break Johnson’s 40-yard dash record $1 million. Easy stuff, right? Not so fast, as you can see Johnson’s run below.

There is a kicker here, as you have to be wearing Adidas’ adizero 5-star 40 cleats to win the cash. As Scott explains, they ran a similar deal last year, where the three fastest players at the combine received $100k each if they were wearing the shoe.
Good luck being as fast as one of the fastest players to hit the combine… ever.
