New Orleans Saints wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. will have the opportunity to prove himself as the fastest professional football player when he competes at a 40-yard dash tournament next month.

Ginn, who recently challenged anyone to race him for $10,000, is one of more than two dozen current NFL players scheduled to appear at 40 Yards of Gold on June 29, according to Cody Benjamin of CBS Sports.

Other participants include Saints running back Alvin Kamara, Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen, New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson, Baltimore Ravens running back Mark Ingram, Minnesota Vikings cornerback Trae Waynes, Washington Redskins cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Arizona Cardinals safety Budda Baker, and Tennessee Titans safety Kevin Byard.

The 40 Yards of Gold website describes the tournament as a "high-stakes, one-night extravaganza" that "will culminate with the champion of the offensive division facing the champion of the defensive division."
