The Contest: Broad Jump
The Contestants: WR Jerome Simpson flew farther than any other NFL Scouting Combine athlete in 2008 when he soared a distance of 11 feet 4 inches in the broad jump. Let's not forget his amazing flip from 2011.
A kangaroo is one of the most well-known jumpers in the animal kingdom. At top speed, the largest of the species can jump up to 40 feet. We got a younger smaller kangaroo for this match-up to give Jerome a chance.
The Spin: While the kangaroo can do amazing things on the run, we are jumping from a complete stand-still. Throw in the smaller contestant and we have ourselves a contest. Maybe they can face off in a boxing match after.
