Philadelphia Eagles WR and world class hurdler, Devon Allen joins Dan Patrick on The Dan Patrick Show. He describes in detail how he was disqualified from the 110m hurdles final heat at the World Championships by 1/1000th of a second. They talk about how fast he really is compared to guys like Tyreek Hill and Usain Bolt, with Allen thinking he is so fast he might be able to beat Tom Brady’s 40yd dash time running backwards. And they do spend a little time discussing the Eagles and what it will be like getting back on the gridiron after nearly 6 years without playing.

Dan Patrick: “What if I had Usain Bolt do hurdles, you against Bolt in hurdles?”

Devon Allen: “Oh, I’d smoke Usain in the hurdles.”

Dan: “If you went backwards and (Tom) Brady went forwards in a 40 (yard dash), you’re going to beat him in that, right?”

Devon: “...The 40 would be close. I don’t want to be too hard on Tom Brady, he’s a great athlete not known for his wheels.”
