Lions Tight End Joseph Fauria Celebrates Touchdown With Tribute to NSYNC’s ‘Bye, Bye, Bye’ (GIF)

Some rookies can look like veterans when they get into the end zone. Joseph Fauria is one of those guys.

The Lions rookie tight end caught a touchdown in Week 1, so he’s been there done that before, and he celebrated like it, too. Fauria caught his second career touchdown pass on Sunday and capped the five-yard score off with a tribute to presumably his favorite boy band growing up.

After the catch, Fauria gave the ball a Rob Gronkowski-esque spike before busting out some killer dance moves with his own personal rendition of NSYNC’s “Bye, Bye. Bye.” The undrafted rookie wasn’t guaranteed a roster spot by any means entering this season, but it seems he knew just what he’d do if he ever got into the end zone.
