Free Jerry Jeudy.
In the Denver Broncos Week 14 game vs. the Carolina Panthers, the Broncos wide receiver showed off his wheels with an insane chase down tackle of Panthers defensive end Efe Obada.
The impressive hustle play came in the second quarter when quarterback Drew Lock was sacked, and Obada scooped up the ball to run it into the end zone. But he didn’t quite make it to the goal line as the Broncos No. 15 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft hunted him down to stop him inside the 5-yard line.
We knew Jeudy was fast after watching him blaze the 40-yard dash with a 4.46-second run at the 2020 NFL Combine, but on Sunday he proved he can fly.
Jerry’s hustle play was reminiscent of another epic chase down we saw this season from DK Metcalf, who stopped Cardinals safety Budda Baker when he attempted to return a Russell Wilson interception for a touchdown in Week 7.
Metcalf started his sprint roughly 10 yards behind Baker, reaching speeds up to 22.64 mph and traveling 114.8 yards to chase down the speedy safety on the 90-yard interception return. His top speed was second highest for a defending player making a tackle this season, per ESPN’s Stats and Info.
The second-year Seahawks wideout is quite possibly the fastest man on the planet.
Maybe there’s a future for Metcalf and Jeudy on the other side of the ball. Either way, you love a good hustle play on Sundays.
