Normally we don’t pay much attention when the Green Bay Packers sign their 12th wide receiver of the offseason, but Terrell Sinkfield is a little different.
Why is he different? He’s the only football player we know of that ran a 4.19 40-yard dash. He ran it at the University of Minnesota pro day back in March. That number is slightly faster than the NFL Combine record of 4.24 seconds, set by Titans running back Chris Johnson in 2008.
So, in other words, this guy is blazingly fast. Does that mean he’s going to make the roster? Probably not. He’d have to beat out at least six other receivers to do so. Still, he might be fun to watch.
Sinkfield (6-0, 200) went undrafted out of Northern Iowa. During his senior season, he caught 43 balls for 499 yards and four touchdowns. He had 28 catches for 464 yards and six touchdowns as a junior.
Here’s the 40.
That’s a long-striding SOB!
Then, here’s a video where Sinkfield says he “just likes the thrill of the bomb.” General Buck Turgidson would be proud.

I timed him at 3.8 from the video… he’s even faster on tape!
Ok… if you watch the video. A lot of his catches in the field and in the endzone. He’s actually waiting for the QB to notice him and then throw him the ball. That’s how open he was (he was playing against the Badgers btw… so you have to factor that in). The reason he didn’t get invited to the combine/drafted is because his QB sucks… and the offense sucked.
“We ran a zone-read, option offense. I wasn’t really in the offense to highlight my best attributes and skills,” Sinkfield said.
So assuming he gets thrown in stride… by a real QB (#12 anyone?) in a pro style offense. That could be something.
Well, Dorsey and Johnson can’t get their bitch asses on the field, so… HERE WE GO STINKFIELD, HERE WE GO, CLAP-CLAP-CLAP.
Yes, his name is Stinkfield from this point on.
That’s great, the kid is fast, but can he play ball?
Genius. I had no idea that was the point. Thanks, tubby.
Anybody notice how many plays he made against that slow Big Ten Badger D?
Also, could he be a good cover corner with that speed, a la Sam Shields who was also a converted college WR? Stay tuned!
Great. But the big news is they are reportedly going to outright release Des Bishop. Maybe this little fucker can play MLB.
Just heard. Holy Shit, what is going on???
CANNOTt believe they are dropping Bishop….
Dude has Ryan Grant feet.
