Former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson knows he couldn’t outrun Cleveland Browns rookie wide receiver Corey Coleman in a foot race.
On Friday, someone via Twitter asked Johnson if he could beat Coleman in a foot race. Johnson responded in his typical confident fashion, saying he could beat 85 percent of the NFL’s position players, but he acknowledged Coleman’s speed.

Johnson, who will work with Browns receivers later this month at the team’s training camp, knows Coleman’s speed is legitimate. Coleman ran a 4.37 40-yard dash at his Baylor pro day. He would have had the second-fastest time among receivers at the NFL Combine—Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller ran a 4.32. Coleman didn’t run in the NFL Combine because of a sports hernia operation he had in December.

Johnson ran a 4.57 40-yard dash at the 2001 NFL Combine. That’s not blazing fast, especially for a wide receiver; the average 40-yard dash time for wide receivers at the 2015 NFL Combine was a 4.50.
