Aidan Hutchinson blows away teammates, coaches with ‘Billie Jean’ performance

We all know that Detroit Lions rookie EDGE Aidan Hutchinson is a pretty damn good football player but according to his teammates and coaches, he is also quite the performer off of the field.

As you have probably heard before, it is a tradition that NFL rookies perform either their college fight song or another song in front of their teammates and coaches as a rookie hazing activity.

Well, when it comes to being hazed a bit by his teammates, Hutchinson is ready to roll, just like he is with everything else.

Aidan Hutchinson blows away teammates, coaches with ‘Billie Jean’ performance

Rather than singing the Michigan fight song, Aidan Hutchinson decided to channel his inner-Michael Jackson as he performed ‘Billie Jean’.

According to his teammates and coaches, Hutchinson’s performance was on point.

“It was money,” offensive tackle Penei Sewell said. “Like, you had to be there.”

“Butter,” Sewell said. “He scratched up a little bit in the beginning, but I get it. Jitters. But then killed it. That man killed it.”

“It’s only my fourth year, but that was definitely the best rookie performance (I’ve seen),” defensive lineman John Cominsky said.

“It was really good,” said defensive tackle Michael Brockers. “A little MJ in there, so you know he set the tempo with the coaches. They were all into it, so seeing that, he definitely set his tone with the team. So he’s one of us.”

Lions head coach Dan Campbell was also impressed with Aidan Hutchinson’s performance of ‘Billie Jean.’

“That man killed it!” Campbell told reporters.

“It just reminded me of just old school, getting your rookies up there and the way he accepted it, and the way he went up there and performed, and man, you just saw the team just,” Glenn said, pausing to make a circular, surrounding motion. “Around that player. He has this personality about himself now that you don’t see from most rookies, which is a good thing.”

“Once you do it, they’re off you,” he said. “I think a lot of guys told him that and he went and did a really good job. So now guys aren’t going to mess with him. He did his rookie duty.”

It sounds like Aidan Hutchinson is fitting in just fine with his Detroit Lions teammates and coaches.

By the way, the ‘Hard Knocks’ cameras were rolling during Hutchinson’s performance and as soon as we obtain the video, we will pass it along!
