“You’ve got to have that burst to get going. Like [U.S. sprinter] Justin Gatlin. Justin Gatlin gets out quick. There’s like a bunch of Justin Gatlins in football. They get to that speed quick and they can catch it before you open up. So it would be hard for (Bolt) to really pull away from guys in football,” told ESPN.


However, It wasn’t all negative from Jones. He clearly is a big fan of Bolt and called him “amazing” at what he does. (RELATED: Superstar Olympian Usain Bolt’s Girlfriend Is A Straight Dime [PHOTOS])

If Bolt ever found himself in an NFL uniform there’s absolutely no doubt that tickets for that game would be insanely high.
