DOTD: Hackenberg Wins Rookie Karaoke Contest


Christian Hackenberg recently donned his Jets uniform for the first time at the 2016 NFLPA Rookie Premiere, but No. 5 also showcased a hidden talent: karaoke.

Hackenberg, who’s already signed his four-year, $4.66 million rookie contract, offered up his best rendition of the Zac Brown Band’s country classic “Chicken Fried.” The 51st overall pick was crowned the best karaoke singer in attendance, beating out the likes of Laquon Treadwell (Minnesota), Tyler Boyd (Cincinnati), Jared Goff (Los Angeles), who turned down the chance to sing, and a handful of other promising rookies.

You can check out Hackenberg’s pipes right here, via 120 Sports. Better call up everyone’s favorite Step Brothers Dale and Brennan to reserve a table at Karaoke and Roll.

Whether the Jets are able to resign veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick or are forced to go with Geno Smith as the week one starter, Hackenberg will have ample opportunity to prove to the New York coaching staff that he’s the future of the franchise.
