Gatlin tries another NFL workout

15 December 2006

America's disgraced Olympic 100m champion Justin Gatlin has trained with the Arizona Cardinals, having already worked out with the Houston Texans.

Gatlin faces a life ban from athletics after testing positive for testosterone in April. His case goes to arbitration in the new year.

Texans coach Gary Kubiak said: "A lot of teams in the league have worked him out over the course of the past month."

"From (general manager) Rick (Smith)'s perspective, he was very impressive."

Kubiak had previously said that offering the sprinter a contract was "not something we would do right now".

"It would be a big step for him to step up and start playing football," he said. "But that looks like it's something that he's interested in."

Kubiak added: "He did a good job (in the workout). Some of our people who were watching him were amazed at how fast he ran."

"I don't even know if he was full speed at that time. But he did catch the ball pretty good."

British sprinter Dwain Chambers, who served a two-year ban for a drugs test failure, has also been put through his paces at NFL training camps.
