John Ross ran a 4.22 forty, but he didn’t wear Adidas… Doh

Adidas offered up a deal for all players attending the Combine. The deal is simple. If you wear their brand when running your forty and you break the forty time of 4.24 held by Chris Johnson, they would give you an island.

Yes, a private island. Well John Ross could have won a private island if he was wearing Adidas shoes and if his unofficial time was correct at 4.22.  The problem was, Ross wore Nike…#Doh
