Ted Ginn recently said he'd race anyone for $10,000, but Travis Benjamin says the New Orleans Saints wide receiver won't battle him.

Benjamin said he tried to accept Ginn's challenge and that he hoped to participate in next month's planned 40-yard dash tournament featuring several NFL players, but he never heard back.

"When I wrote them they didn't write me back, so I knew what that was," Benjamin said. "I won't back down from a challenge one bit. I'm a competitive person. If you want to get on the field and race, we can race."
