A time honored tradition at NFL training camps is making rookies do embarrassing things. From carrying helmets to getting tied to goalposts, first-year players have to go through all sorts of menial and unenviable tasks once they make it to the pros.
One popular test for rookies is making them sing, and most of the time, the youngsters humiliate themselves. Whether its their alma mater's fight song or a track picked out by the team's veterans, countless stories and videos have been passed around of a rookie being forced to sing in front of his teammates and doing a terrible job.
But every once in a while, you get a first year guy who bucks the trend, and instead of delivering a rendition filled with missed notes, they unveil a majestic voice that was previously kept under wraps.
At Redskins camp, that rookie is undrafted Texas A&M running back Trey Williams. Check out his sensational take on R. Kelly's contemporary classic "Bump N' Grind" here, courtesy of Redskins safety Duke Ihenacho:

To steal a line from Will Ferrell's Step Brothers, Williams' voice is "like a combination of Fergie and Jesus."
The tailback may only stand at 5'7", but the kid's got some giant vocal chords. If this whole NFL thing doesn't work out, it sure looks like he has a nice career to fall back on.
