Olympic sprinter to tryout for Cowboys

The Cowboys had great success with one Olympic sprinter. Gold medalist Bob Hayes, once dubbed the fastest man in the world, went on to Hall of Fame success in the NFL. It appears that they'll try it again. Australian Josh Ross, who ran the 100-meter dash at the 2004 Games (10.22), told Australian newspaper The Age that he has a workout with the Cowboys.

"I realize there's a long, long way to go yet, but I'm determined to show them what I can do," Ross told the newspaper. "It will be very competitive over there, but it's not at all daunting for me. I'm used to that kind of pressure." 

Speed, as we know, does not always translate to NFL success. Eastern Kentucky receiver Rondel Melendez ran an electronic-timed record 4.24 in the 40-yard dash at the combine in 1999. Who? He was fast, but not good enough to play in the NFL.
