Former LSU wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has an idea for a new training partner this offseason.
The NFL tweeted Beckham was the league’s fastest player in Week 14. When he saw that, Beckham jokingly tweeted at the world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt, and asked if he’d be interested in helping Beckham get even faster.

SportsCenter saw Beckham’s tweet and showed fans what it might look like to have those two on the same field.

Bolt is a 9-time olympic gold medalist. He has won every olympic event in which he has ever competed, and he holds world records in the 100-meter and 200-meter dash.
Beckham has been electric this season, racking up 1,109 receiving yards and nine touchdowns on 79 catches. He had four catches for 94 yards against Dallas on Sunday. That included a 61-yard touchdown catch which prompted the NFL’s tweet to start this whole exchange.
Bolt has yet to respond to Beckham’s tweet. But here’s hoping fans get to see these two working on their speed together very soon.
