After Lamar Jackson set the single-season rushing record for a quarterback against the New York Jets, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady challenged the Baltimore Ravens quarterback to a race with a unique twist.
Brady suggested on Twitter that the two quarterbacks run the 40-yard dash on natural grass but Jackson has to wear rollerblades.
Brady’s idea prompted oddsmakers to contemplate such a race. According to BetOnline, Jackson on rollerblades would still be the favorite to win the race.
Jackson, however, said rollerblading on grass is difficult and he believes Brady would win the race.
“[Brady] probably gone win that race,” Jackson said about the 42-year-old quarterback. “Tom still got a little bit in him.”
Jackson has rushed for 1,103 yards through 14 games of the 2019-20 NFL season, while Brady has rushed for 1,035 yards throughout his 280 NFL starts.
