It was Charles Gaines' chance to run the 40-yard dash Monday morning, and as you probably could have guessed, the cornerback who once claimed "I run with animals" turned some heads.
Gaines turned in a 4.34 40 time, with his first 10 yards being run in 1.53 seconds. Suffice it to say, folks were impressed.

Nice work from Louisville CB Charles Gaines in a couple drills now. He's able to stay balanced + compact in a variety of CB movements.— Dion Caputi (@nfldraftupdate) February 23, 2015
More important than any of that, however, was Charles busting out his inner-Charlesness later in the day.

Not sure why Charles Gaines is out there looking like Cool Runnings, but dude talks like an LOB.— Jared Stanger (@JaredStanger) February 23, 2015
I already miss him so much.
