Adidas Offers Cash Prize For 40-Yard Dash Time At NFL Combine
adidas on Friday announced that it is offering $100,000 to the "fastest dasher wearing adidas products" in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine. The company "wants the focus on its adiZero 5-Star 40 cleat," which it has updated with a "track-inspired version for a 40-specific model." adidas last year offered an endorsement deal to the fastest runner at the combine, but now-Bills WR Marquise Goodwin signed with rival Nike after recording a time of 4.27 seconds. So this year, the reward is on offer only to the "fastest in three stripes" (SI.com, 2/21).
