The Kansas City wide receiver certainly thinks so. Responding to Bolt’s recent appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, Hill called out the eight-time Olympic gold medalist.
“Line up then stop hiding,” the Chiefs star wrote on Twitter.
Hill doubled down on his challenge the following day, calling Bolt “washed up” and saying the 34 year old couldn’t beat him in a 40-yard dash.
During an appearance with with the Dan Patrick Show on Thursday morning, Bolt said he still thinks he can top Hill at any distance. Patrick suggested a set of conditions for the race: 70-yard dash with a gold medal and a Super Bowl ring on the line.
Bolt said he was down for that wager.
Here you go… Usain Bolt vs. Tyreek Hill in a 70 meter dash. @UsainBolt says he'll put up a gold medal if Tyreek puts up his Super Bowl ring. You in @cheetah? We'll set it up for the week after the Super Bowl. Let's do it! pic.twitter.com/YLY3YUq57I

During the Super Bowl festivities in 2019, Bolt casually lined up in sweatpants and ran an NFL-record 4.22 40-yard dash. Hill ran a 4.29 during his draft combine back in 2016.
“Me and Tyreek Hill got into it because he’s a Gatorade-sponsored athlete also, so we got into it one time,” Bolt said on The Pat McAfee Show a couple weeks ago. “We were sitting down, and we were talking. He was like how he could take me, and he was talking, ‘blah blah blah,’ but then I went to the combine one year, and if you go on the internet right now, I ran a 4.22 in my sweats and some shoes. I told Tyreek, ‘You got no chance!’”
Who knows if this race will ever happen, but it will sure be entertaining if it does.
