Did Bo Jackson really run a 4.13 40-Yard Dash at the 1986 NFL Combine?

Bo Jackson is considered one of the greatest athletes ever. But when fans hear about some of the things he used to do, it's hard for them to separate fact from fiction—not because people think he's a liar, but because of how outrageously talented he was.

Well, what Bo recently said on ESPN's His and Hers will blow your mind.

With the 2016 NFL Combine wrapping up, the 40-Yard Dash is still a hot topic. ESPN brought Bo in to ask him about his 4.12 40 time at the 1986 Combine. As you might have guessed, that time is a rumor. Jackson claims his real time was 4.13. Like that's easier to believe. A time of 4.13 would obliterate the current NFL 40 record of 4.24, held by Chris Johnson.

Given all of the amazing things Jackson did, we don't want to doubt his claim, but 4.13 is such an unbelievably fast time, we don't know what to think. Watch the video below to hear the story from Bo himself.
