VIDEO: Japanese WR Takashi Kurihara Impresses at NFL’s Veteran Combine

A participant from the other side of the globe may have had the most impressive showing at the NFL’s Veteran Combine.

Takashi Kurihara, who played for IBM Big Blue of Japan’s X-League last season, clocked some decent 40 times on Sunday. Kurihara was showing his skills among big names like former St. Louis Rams’ DL Michael Sam, Cleveland Browns’ QB Brady Quinn, and Dallas Cowboys’ Felix Jones.

Here is a Vine video of Kurihara running some out routes at the NFL’s combine for post-college players Tempe, Arizona at the Arizona Cardinals facility.

Kurihara was at the Baltimore Raven‘s mini camp in May of 2013 and perhaps his efforts will once again prompt a team to give him an opportunity.
