At 53, Herschel Walker says he could still contribute to an NFL team

During an interview on Thursday, Herschel Walker the former Cowboys running back said he thinks he could suit up and play in the NFL right now. At age 53.

“There is not a doubt in my mind, if I played today, I (could) contribute to a team,” Walker told Boomer & Carton.

Walker feels he could play in a running back by committee. 

“Let me tell you the reason why [I can play],” Walker said. “Running backs today don’t play every play. They only play, like, a couple of plays and they go out of the game.”

“I can return kickoffs,” Walker said. “I still run very well, like I’ve always (run). So I know I can be a positive thing.”

He said last year he ran a 4.3 forty, at 52…..

“The last time I ran a 40, I ran a 4.3,” Walker said. “That was like a year ago. That was when I had not been doing any track work. All I had been doing was [MMA].”

That’s insane, he might be able to contribute for real.
