NFL players seem to get faster every year, but Tyreek Hill is widely regarded as the fastest player in the league for the better part of half a decade. However, there is someone who believes they can beat him in a foot race, and the challenge has so far not been accepted.
Tyreek Hill has been avoiding the DK Metcalf race for 2 years

DK Metcalf is one of the most physically gifted players we have ever seen in the league. It’s not just his amazing physique, but also his world-class speed that sets him apart from most of his peers.
Perhaps the most recognizable game of a wide receiver’s career was when he became a defender. Cardinals Safety Budd Baker intercepted a run-up pass and started down the touchline. Tired when it came to the pick, Metcalf ran after Baker and saved a touchdown in one of the most challenging plays you’ve ever seen.
Hill, on the other hand, has a highlight reel full of defender plays that showcase his incredible streak. While playing for the Chiefs, he was known as the league’s most dangerous weapon and was a big part of the team’s success. He maintained his dominance while playing for the Dolphins last season, gaining the most yards of his career.
Update: #Seahawks WR DK Metcalf challenged #dolphins WR Tyreek Hill for the race.@cheetah previously said he would be racing DK for $50,000 to a charity of his choice but added this @dkm14 she is “afraid” to pursue him.

Who is faster? There’s only one real way to find out.
But apparently Tyreek Hill doesn’t want to do that. Metcalf recently appeared on Undisputed and told Shannon Sharpe and Skip Bayless that he did his best to get the two of them on the track at the same time.
“I have stretched out my hand to his people. I just couldn’t agree. I’ve been trying to come to an agreement for two years.”
In a successful attempt to shoot a viral clip, Sharpe told Metcalf to deliver a message to Hill directly to the camera. Metcalf took the opportunity to take a picture of Hill and his age.
“We tried to come to an agreement for two years, it just didn’t work out. You’ve seen me running at track and field events, I haven’t raced any 30-year-old. I’ve raced against real athletes. So whenever you want to do it, jump on the track, let me know.
When asked what was going on with Tyreek Hill, Metcalf said the Dolphins wide receiver wanted to race in July, which was too close to the start of the NFL season for Metcalf’s liking.
