Willie Gault says he could beat DeSean Jackson in a foot race

Former NFL wide receiver Willie Gault believes he could be DeSean Jackson in a race at the age of 53.  He claims he hasn’t lost much of his speed.

The former NFL wideout tells TMZ Sports that even at the ripe age of 53, he STILL has the jets to burn up the some of the league’s elite runners – including DeSean Jackson.

“I’m less than a second slower than I was in my prime,” Gault says … telling us he’s still clocking a 4.3 in his 40-yard dash.

I would love to see Gault and Jackson race.
