Why John Ross Will Not Win An Island From Adidas
As many of you probably know, Adidas has been advertising that anyone who breaks Chris Johnson's time of 4.24 seconds at the 40 yard dash at the NFL Combine will win a free island. No one knows if Adidas actually thought anyone would break the record, but that really doesn't matter. What does matter is, as of 1:41 EST on May 4, 2017 at the NFL combine, John Ross ran an official 4.22 at the NFL Combine. However this impressive feat, John Ross will not win an island because of a slight catch in the rules. In the rules, it clarifies that you must be wearing Adidas shoes to win the island, while Ross was wearing Nikes instead. John Ross laughably said that he was fine with not winning the island, because he doesn't have a boat to get their. John Ross will definitely be a name to watch as the draft approaches, and I wish him all the luck I can on a long, healthy, successful career.
