It is wildly apparent Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Scotty Miller does not read Arrowhead Pride.

If he did, he would have seen that Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill still thinks about Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey’s words from three years ago, when he emphasized that the budding receiver was not worth much more than a return specialist.

Appearing on The Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday morning, Miller was asked by Patrick about how he might fare in a footrace with Hill — who is widely considered the fastest man in the NFL.

MILLER: “I’m taking me, every day of the week. I’ll take me over anybody. Tyreek is unbelievable, super quick, unbelievable talent. But if we’re talking about a race, I’ve got all the confidence in myself going up against anybody.”

Miller ran a 4.39-second 40-yard dash at his college pro day, while Hill ran a 4.29. That is a big difference in terms of 40 times. In case you were wondering, Hill has already seen and weighed in on the matter.

Hill outgained Miller 1,399 to 515 scrimmage yards in 2020, including Hill’s 269 yards against the Buccaneers. Miller had zero yards in that game.
