If the Steelers are looking for a deep threat to add to the roster in 2016, they don't have to look far, they just need move Ryan Shazier to the offense, because apparently, he's the fastest player on the team.
Shazier showed off his blazing speed on Wednesday when he pulled off the upset of the offseason: The Pittsburgh linebacker beat Antonio Brown and the rest of the Steelers receiving corps in a foot race that was held after the team's OTA.
Brown definitely wasn't ashamed of the loss: He shared a video of the race on Snapchat.
The race included Brown, Shazier, Markus Wheaton, Eli Rogers and Sammie Coates.
As you can see below, Brown gave up about half way through the race, but everyone else ran to the finish line and Shazier clearly got there first.
Actually, it's not that clear who got there first, so let's take a look at a picture of the photo finish that Steelers linebacker Vince Williams shared on Twitter.
That's a little clearer.
Shazier definitely won and will now be able to brag about this until the end of time.
The fact that Shazier is an athletic freak isn't a complete surprise. The former Ohio State linebacker ran a 4.36 at his pro day coming out of college, which is a faster 40-yard dash time than any of the other four guys ran when they were coming out of college.
Shazier also had one other advantage: His lack of body hair.
Shazier lack of body hair makes him more aerodynamic. This allows him to tap into the Speed force 😂😂😂— Vincenzo Williams (@VinnyVidiVici98) June 8, 2016
Maybe the Steelers should give up on this whole "Shazier at linebacker thing" and just move him to the offense.
