DeAngelo Hall is always mouthy with his confidence. According to Olympic gold medalist LeShawn Merritt, he was willing to put his money on it.

The Washington Redskins cornerback told Beijing’s 400-meter champion that he’d put up $100,000 against Merritt’s gold medal in a race.

Explains Merritt, via DC Sports Bog:

“He is from the same area as me, and his agent was having a pool party right after the Olympics. D-Hall is a trash talker, so of course he started talking that he could beat me in a race. I just won the gold medal so I wasn’t hearing any of it. He was going to put up $100,000 against my gold medal. He wanted to do a 40-yard dash, but we settled on the 100-meter. Nothing ever came of it, though.”

Nothing came of it?  So it’s like all of DeAngelo Hall’s other trash talk?

Hall is fast. And Merritt is a middle-distance sprinter, not a 9.8 burner like Usain Bolt or Tyson Gay. Could the football player have won in a short race?

What do you guys think?!
