University of Washington wide receiver John Ross had scouts’ tongues a-wagging at the NFL combine in March when he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.22 seconds, shattering Chris Johnson’s nine-year-old record.

And last week, the Cincinnati Bengals took him with the No. 9 overall pick in the NFL draft, giving that city another speedster to pair with Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton, who’s considered the fastest man in baseball and on Thursday became the fourth-fastest player in MLB history to reach 200 career stolen bases.

So obviously Ross and Hamilton must race, and that’s exactly what the Reds player suggested on Thursday.

“Who is Cincinnati’s fastest man? Billy Hamilton wants to race John Ross,” he tweeted.

“It’s something I look forward to. I’m a competitor, if something happens with him, it happens,” Hamilton told reporters after the Reds’ win over the Pirates on Thursday afternoon. “We’ll do it for a charity event. I’m willing to do it.”

Hamilton said he hasn’t run the 40 since the ninth grade, putting up a time of 4.5 seconds. One would think he’s gotten faster since then.

“I think we could do 40 and I think it’d be a good race for the city and for me and him to get our names out there,” Hamilton said. “It’s something we could look forward to looking into, our agents and see how it goes.”

So far there hasn’t been any word out of the Ross camp, though before the draft he did say he’d like to take on Olympic sprinting icon Usain Bolt in the 40. The track and field crowd chuckled at the prospect, and 2016 U.S. Olympian Christian Coleman decided to show him just how much of a long shot he’d be. Running under similar conditions as Ross at the combine, Coleman ran the 40 in 4.12 seconds.
