Detroit Lions tight end Joseph Fauria is a dancing machine.
The 24-year-old spent his rookie season celebrating his seven touchdowns with some serious moves in the end zone. Fauria became a fan favorite for his entertaining little numbers with his tribute to NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye” ranking as one of his top celebrations.
Fauria has a lot to live up to this season — in the dancing department, anyway — and SI.com’s Extra Mustard helped him get warmed up for for this season with a video that stars him recreating touchdown celebrations throughout history.
Fauria covers all of the bases, mastering “The Dirty Bird” and “The Funky Chicken” and the “Raji Roll” before ending with an admission that he never should have started dancing in the first place.
Lions training camp officially gets underway Monday, so here’s hoping Fauria has a few moves of his own up his sleeve.
