Marital love is willing to admit when your significant other is better than you at certain things.
Jacksonville Jaguars defensive back Aaron Ross has no qualms about admitting his wife, U.S. Olympian Sanya Richards-Ross, is the fast one in the family.
“She is, she is,” Ross said Thursday on NFL Network’s “NFL AM” when asked who was faster.
“I might get her in the 40,” he laughed. “100, I might lean at the line. 200, I don’t have a chance, and the 400 — I wouldn’t even get on the track.”
The sixth-year pro ran a 4.44-second 40-yard dash at the 2007 NFL Combine.
Ross will fly to London on Friday to watch his wife compete in the 400-meter run, and the two-time Super Bowl champion isn’t afraid to admit his spouse is faster.
“Not too many guys that can say their wife can beat them in a race,” he said.
