The Five Worst Musical NFL Players
Professional football players dabbling in music? What could possibly go wrong?
Glad you asked. You did ask, right?
5. Ben Utecht, Cincinnati Bengals
Ben Utecht suffered a concussion while working out with the Cincinnati Bengals and decided to give gospel music a shot. All you need to know is that Utecht has had five concussions, he's a new dad and a self-proclaimed family man. Well, do you know any family men who make good music?
4. Vince Young, Tennessee Titans
The Madison High School/University of Texas all-worlder and recently benched Titans starting QB would like you to know that his name is "Vince Young" and he's "kinda young," and yes, "the boy is in H-Town." And also that he "just copped him a chain." Mayne. VY don't you ever quit your day job, sir.
3. Al Harris, Green Bay Packers
On the field, Green Bay Packers' cornerback Al Harris is known as "The Dirty One." In the studio, he's more like The Corny One. Harris recently teamed up with his childhood friend Kevin Soto (aka Proof) to record a cuss-free hardcore rap with a Christian edge. We can't knock the concept. It's noble alright. But your beats sound like a monkey fellating on a Casio keyboard. Lose the Tinkerbell production and you might be onto something.
2. Deion Sanders, Retired
Neon Deion is arguably the greatest cornerback to ever play the game. He also freelanced as a kick returner and an outfielder, so forgive him for thinking he could do anything he set his mind to. While Sanders left us with enough football memories to last a lifetime, his 1994 rap debut, Must Be the Money, was completely forgettable.
1. Free Reign, Dallas Cowboys
We all know that heavy metal is the devil's music. After being hyped as a Super Bowl contender- by others as well as owner Jerry Jones - the team formerly known as God's Team has started the new NFL season in an 0-2 hole. This is obviously God's way of punishing the Cowboys for creating a heavy metal band named Free Reign.
Free Reign consists of Cowboys right tackle Marc Colombo (lead vocals/guitar), right guard Leonard Davis (bass), backup guard Cory Procter (drums), and Justin Chapman, who was Davis' teammate at Wortham High School. The music sounds like all of their internal organs trying to commit mass suicide at once. It's guaranteed to give you some of the heartiest chuckles you've had in a while.
