Former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson knows he couldn't outrun Cleveland Browns rookie wide receiver Corey Coleman in a foot race.
On Friday, someone via Twitter asked Johnson if he could beat Coleman in a foot race. Johnson responded in his typical confident fashion, saying he could beat 85 percent of the NFL's position players, but he acknowledged Coleman's speed.
I can beat 85% of the NFL skill position players running still, Corey is part of the 15% https://t.co/fFPEonaVwo

Johnson, who will work with Browns receivers later this month at the team's training camp, knows Coleman's speed is legitimate. Coleman ran a 4.37 40-yard dash at his Baylor pro day. He would have had the second-fastest time among receivers at the NFL Combine—Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller ran a 4.32. Coleman didn't run in the NFL Combine because of a sports hernia operation he had in December.
Yeah, Coleman would burn him.
