Markus White Channels Barry White

Posted by Brian Tinsman on August 17, 2011 – 5:54 pm

A word of the wise to all future NFL rookies: don’t confess any hobbies or special talents.  Rookie outside linebacker Markus White found that out the hard way.

One of the highlights of training camp after-hours, is the rookie talent performances.

While the rookies do get to show off some hidden abilities, the crowd is mostly as supportive as Stand Up at the Apollo.

“I think they want me to sing,” he said sheepishly.  “I messed up and I told ’em that I sing all the time, so now they keep asking me to go up.”

White is currently proving his versatility on the football field by making the transition from defensive end to outside linebacker.  According to him, he’s just as versatile behind the microphone.

“I can sing about anything, man,” he boasted.  “I mean, I like a variety of singing from Usher to John Legend.  I mean, it could be oldies, I like the hits.  I like Earth, Wind and Fire, I can go way back. It just depends on what they want.”

Apologies to anyone reading this blog who considers Earth, Wind and Fire to be “way back.”

For right now, White has escaped the spotlight, thanks to the crowd of rookies in camp.  He knows, however, that he can’t run forever.  “Eventually, they’ll make me do it in the linebacker room.”

Here’s one blogger’s vote for “Let’s Groove.”

    His ears lobes look deformed like he use to wear gages, just wondering if he had some type of procedure to repair them.
