Chiefs’ Tyreek Hill calls out former 49ers receiver Marquise Goodwin on ESPN, prompting response

Jul 23, 2020 at 12:45 PM--

Former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens looked pretty fast while showing that he still has some NFL-level speed, even at 46 years old. Of course, nothing can make you look pedestrian more than running next to NFL speedster Tyreek Hill of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Hill's quarterback, Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes, was impressed despite saying via Instagram that his receiver appeared to "let off the gas" at the end of the run.

Hill is tired of other players trying to lay claim to the title of "NFL's fastest." He made that clear during an interview on ESPN's First Take while calling out one former San Francisco 49ers wideout.

"If these people really wanted to race me, they would personally message me on Twitter, on Instagram," Hill said. "They wouldn't go on Twitter and then talk trash and don't act. If you're going to talk trash, at least at (@) me."

Host Max Kellerman asked Hill who "they" are.

"Marquise Goodwin, whoever," he responded. "Whoever wants to race me, we can do whatever. I already proved that I'm better than you at wide receiver. Now I've got to prove to you that I'm faster than you too? That's really going to hurt when I'm faster than you. And I move better than you? That's really going to hurt."

San Francisco traded Goodwin to the Philadelphia Eagles on April 25, after three seasons with the team. He is a former member of the United States track and field team and an Olympic long jumper. The receiver last year won the "40 Yards of Gold," a competition to determine the NFL's fastest player.

Although, Hill did not participate.

In 2018, reporters asked Goodwin about Hill, and who he felt was faster.

He responded: "I don't compare myself to anybody, but I mean..."

Goodwin then paused, rolled up his sleeve, and showed off his tattoo of the Olympic rings.

Hill later doubled down on his First Take comments, tweeting out, "I said what I said."

Update: Goodwin responded to Hill with the following tweet. The Chiefs receiver did ask any challengers to at (@) him on Twitter. You can't say Goodwin doesn't know how to follow directions.

ESPN on Monday picked the NFL's best offenses at every personnel grouping. Not only did the San Francisco 49ers run their unit in 21 personnel (2 RBs, 1 TE, 2 WRs) more than any other team, they did it the best, according to the sports site. Head coach Kyle Shanahan values his fullback, Kyle Juszczyk, and the importance of having a lead blocker opening things up in the rushing attack. That can lead to significant gains by Raheem Mostert, Tevin Coleman, or whoever is carrying the football. San Francisco recorded an NFL-leading 270 snaps out of 21 personnel last season while leading all teams with 153 rushing attempts,

Bill Barnwell of ESPN went team-by-team to project potential future Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees for each. How do you do that for a team like the New York Jets? Well, they do have running back Frank Gore on the roster. Barnwell lists him as "likely" to be a future inductee. What about the talent-depleted Miami Dolphins? Yeah, that one is harder. Barnwell couldn't come up with anyone who had more than a 10 percent chance to one day earn Hall of Fame honors. For the San Francisco 49ers, the decision was pretty easy. The ESPN writer lists veteran cornerback Richard Sherman as "likely" to make the Hall of Fame, which means he has between a
