Despite not hearing his name called in the 2015 NFL Draft, Trey Williams is still getting his shot at the pros, as the former Texas A&M back is currently in training camp with the Washington Redskins. He’s somewhat of a long shot to stick around for much longer, but he’s confident there’s a spot waiting for him on the 53-man roster once he wins over the coaching staff with his blinding speed. Or his singing.
“I’m going to make them believe,” Williams told Redskins.com. “They’re going to believe in me by the end of this camp.”
Oh, we believe. During the dark days of training camp, rookies are leaned on to provide entertainment for the team. Some call it hazing, others call it King Ugly. Either way, it was Williams’ turn to step in front of the class on Wednesday, and he decided to make the most of his opportunity, singing R. Kelly’s “Bump N’ Grind.” How’d he do? Let’s put it this way: If Williams can break tackles half as well as he can belt out oversexed R&B jams, the Redskins might be giving him the starting job in Week 1.

Were his teammates expecting him to sing it better than the original? Probably not. That may explain why they just about lost their collective minds.
Colt McCoy, who inked a one-year extension with the Redskins this offseason, told the Richmond Times-Dispatch that not only is Williams the funniest member of the team, he’s constantly signing. This isn’t the first time the former Aggie has brought down the house with his sweet rendition of R. Kelly’s classic, and it’s probably safe to assume it won’t be the last. Watch your back, Alfred Morris.
