I know I’m a little late to the Robert Gill video party (you go on vacation, you tend to overlook some things) but that viral clip of the Cardinals wide receiver briefly running on a treadmill set at 25 miles an hour (below) is something to behold. If you’ve been reading the site, you already know Gill’s story and there is something intriguing about a 29-year-old still longing for a true NFL chance. (The treadmill video is only the latest on youtube of Gill, who has been posting various highlight videos over the years to draw attention to his possibilities.) The offseason at times was rough for Gill. It seemed like the coaches were barking at him more than anyone else for a while there. But Gill has pure speed, something the Cards would love to have in the wide receiving arsenal.
Gill was mentioned more than once by coach Bruce Arians as someone who caught his eye. If he has the hands to catch the ball when the lights come on, he’s got a good chance to make this team. Because he certainly has the legs.
