On the lighter side of things...

Bennet, Williamson, and Robinson want to have a foot race, :razz: .


Foot race: Players often brag about their speed, but three Vikings are going to test themselves.

Wide receiver Koren Robinson and running back Michael Bennett said they, along with rookie receiver Troy Williamson, are going to run a 100-yard dash Monday.

Bennett is a former Big Ten Conference sprint champion, while Williamson was one of the fastest players at the NFL Combine.

And Robinson?

"I'll be the underdog," he said. "I like it."

Bennett, meanwhile, is concerned about Williamson.

"I need to shed five pounds by next week," he said.

Obviously Michael Bennett, it wont even be close.

Bennett ran a 9;91 100 meter dash in college, he qualified for the olympic qualifiers(that sounds odd, but he did) the world record is 9.77 so Bennett is FAST, but I dont know how much his injuries over the past few years will affect that speed.

Troy has a quick 40, but that doesn't mean he has Bennett's top speed.

and Koren just doesn't have a shot.

I say Bennett by at least .7 seconds.

T-Will is fast, but I would have to say Bennett. The guy was a crazy Olympic qualifying sprinter. I'm not sure if it would even be close.

You would've thought he came with that when we drafted him. http://www.smilies-and-more.de/pics/smilies/various/012.gif

bennett should win this race and then he should quit fball and focus on track, because his speed isn't doing him anything with us right now

You can say that again....he could be the best back in history if he could break a tackle or two without breaking a bone in his leg!

Since Bennett is so fast, why don't he line us as WR and just go deep and beat the corner? With our O-line and his lack of tackle breaking skills he would do better just utilizing his speed.

Bennett runs Olympic time. I am more interested in the race between Robinson and T-Will because bennett will blow past both. Now throw moss in there and it is very interesting.
