Buccaneers rookie CB Sean Murphy-Bunting had something to say when Johnson posed the question. Murphy-Bunting believes that he could beat Chad Johnson in a 40 yard dash race. Johnson ran a 4.58 40 at the combine coming out of college. Murphy-Bunting ran a 4.42 40 at the combine this past year.

Chad Johnson is 19 years older than Sean Murphy-Bunting but this could be an interesting race if it ever happened. Johnson is still in tremendous shape and Murphy-Bunting is in tip top shape heading into his rookie season. If the race went down, you’d bet people would tune in despite not really knowing who Sean Murphy-Bunting is. Hopefully he makes a name for himself this season and people will recognize the skill he possesses.
