I’m going to preface this with two things. One, this was hand timed on an iPhone. Two, we already knew Martavis Bryant was really fast.
Bryant posted a workout video of him moments ago running a 4.27 40 yard dash. Check it out.
To compare, he turned in an official 4.42 40 at the NFL Combine back in 2014. But Bryant’s also admitted to never putting in the time to train until this year, a wake-up call when he was away from the game. It’s fair to think he’s in the best shape of his life. And the heaviest he’s ever been, posting back in January he got his weight up to nearly 230 pounds.
It’s just a start but Bryant is back on the right path to a successful NFL career. Right now, that’s all you can hope for.
A 230 pounder who is running in the high 4.2’s? I think Ben Roethlisberger is going to want to stick around a couple more seasons.
