Tyreek Hill says he’s still gunning to race Usain Bolt … telling TMZ Sports he’s so confident he’ll beat the track legend, he’s down to put his Super Bowl ring on the line!!
“Me and you can just meet at a local high school,” Hill said in a message to Bolt. “I can come to Jamaica. We can get it poppin’ on the YouTube. Huh!?”
If you’re unfamiliar, Bolt and Hill have gone back and forth about a potential race for months — with Hill initially calling the sprinter out earlier this year.
Hill — arguably the fastest man in the NFL — accused Bolt of ducking him … and told him to “stop hiding” in a fiery social media post.
Bolt eventually fired back, telling us he’d be willing to put his gold medal on the line in a race if Hill was willing to put his SB LIV ring in the mix.
And, when we spoke with Hill a few days ago — he told us he’s ready to meet those conditions to get the race moving.
“Right now, it’s getting kind of personal,” Hill said. “Right now, it’s about my ego right now. Because I feel like he just tried me.”
Hill continued, “First of all, my momma always told me you never let nobody talk trash to you if they’re wearing a tight shirt like that. Like, his Puma shirt was choking him. I’m not fittin’ to allow that to happen.”
Even though he’s been retired for years, Bolt’s still got to be the favorite in the race (right?) — after all, Terrell Owens told us he thinks it’d actually be a laugher.
But, watch the Hill clip, it’s clear the NFL wideout is confident — and it’s even more clear this sprint-off needs to happen ASAP!!!
