NEW YORK (BVM) – Statistics show that NFL players are getting faster over the years. But, the retired NFL stars from recent history are the ones who set the bar on what it means to be a speedster.
Here are the 10 fastest retired NFL players from the modern era, according to data compiled by Reel Analytics – a sports technology and data company that analyzes highlights to reveal the maximum speeds reached by players on the field.
Notably, Tyreek Hill owns the record for the fastest top speed recorded by a current NFL player. In 2016, Hill hit 23.24 MPH, and that speed has yet to be topped, according to the NFL’s Next Gen Stats.
