Adidas offers Porsches for 3 fastest at NFL combine
Adidas is offering customized Porsches to the three fastest players at the NFL combine who wear Adidas cleats, according to ESPN's Darren Rovell.
The top three finishers in the 40-yard dash will receive a Porsche 911 Carrera, which is worth more than $80,000. The cars have cheetah print paint jobs to match the Uncaged adizero 5-star cleat.
Ohio State's Devin Smith and Miami's Phillip Dorsett are considered the favorites in the 40-yard dash, but they will have to sign with Adidas before the combine.
The stipulation comes after Adidas' plan backfired at last year's combine. Brandin Cooks, who the Saints drafted in the first round, won $100,000 from Adidas for running the quickest 40-yard dash, but he went on to sign with Nike.
