The Philadelphia Eagles may have one of the fastest humans in the world on their roster and he hasn’t even played a game for the team yet.

Wide receiver Devon Allen finished third in the 110-meter hurdles in America.

The finish qualified Allen for the World Athletic Championships next month in Eugene, Oregon.

Earlier in June, Devon Allen ran the third-fastest 110-meter hurdles race in history, with a time of 12.84 seconds.

The former Oregon Duck product hasn’t played football since 2016 but signed with the Philadelphia Eagles in April after an impressive workout.

Allen joins a receiving group new-comers AJ Brown and Zach Pascal joining current youngsters in Davonta Smith, Quez Watkins and Jalen Reagor. While the position group is loaded with talent, Devon Allen’s ability as a sprinter could carve a nice career for himself on the team as a returner or an offensive weapon.

Allen may only be 27 years old and his football career could be a long-shot, but he has already accomplished enough to solidify himself as a legend on the track.
