Run to the island
NFL prospects are headed to Indianapolis today for the annual scouting combine in hopes of improving their chances of being selected in April’s NFL Draft. Now Adidas is adding some extra incentive.
The shoe and apparel company announced Monday that it will buy a private island for any draft prospect who breaks the combine record in the 40-yard dash while wearing Adidas cleats. The record is 4.24 seconds, set by former Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson in 2008.
The one catch is the value of the property will be capped at $1 million. If the record is not broken, the prospect with the fastest time will receive a $10,000 bonus.
