The pinnacle NFL dash challenge between two of the league’s fastest catchers might be around the corner. DK Metcalf is almost back to normal following his surgical procedure. It’s time for the long-awaited showdown with Tyreek Hill to see who is the fastest in the NFL. Trash-talking has indeed been happening for quite some time. Finally, the Cheetah has taken up the challenge, with a significant reward on the line.

DK Metcalf has been vocal regarding his self -proclamation for the ‘Fastest man in NFL’ title. Tyreek Hill also laid out massive challenges to some of the Track and Run legends, most notably Usain Bolt. While Metcalf continues to pursue a physical performance that would let him compete in the 2024 Olympics, the race versus Tyreek Hill is currently round the blocks.

Sharpe gave Hill 48 hours to answer Metcalf’s remark, but Cheetah responded in less than 15 minutes. Hill challenged Metcalf to a race, supplying a $50,000 wager on the line. The winnings go to whichever charitable organization the winning party chooses. He further implied that Metcalf was terrified, claiming that he had receipts for their direct messages to back up his claim.

The race for $50,000 would be an exhilarating experience, and some television channels would really be wise to secure the rights towards it.

Metcalf has the modest benefit of being four years Hill’s younger, but he is battling a toe injury. So, will fans get to see Tyreek and DK race? Time will only tell.
