If you were starting a new job and were required to sing a song in front of all of your co-workers, what song would you pick? Would it be your favorite song? A song you think sounds good in the shower? Maybe something funny? Well, Dallas Cowboys center Travis Frederick went with humor when it was his turn to sing in front of his teammates in Oxnard, Calif. The 6-3, 311-pounder picked "I'm a Little Teapot." "I thought it would be a good song," Frederick said. "Obviously the point of it is to make yourself look like a fool, so I thought that was a good song to do that, and show your weakness and hopefully the team likes you. "I gave it my all. I thought I did a decent job." When the first-round pick heard that some of his teammates said his song was the worst of the group, he replied: "Well, that really hurts." "I heard from several people that the execution was just fine, though," he said. "It was good execution. I tried. I did what I could. I was enthusiastic about it." Second-round pick Gavin Escobar sang "Ain't Too Proud to Beg." The 6-6, 249-pound tight end choose the Temptations song because he had some experience singing it in front of a group. Escobar said he performed the song with a few of his teammates during his freshman year at San Diego State. The group went around to several sororities, singing songs in an attempt to promote the football team. Fourth-round pick B.W. Webb said Escobar did "alright." Who was the worst? "J.J. Wilcox was by far the worst," Webb said. "He sang a Big Poppa song. He was terrible." Webb had not yet performed in front of the team at the time he was interviewed, but said he was going to sing "Sexual Healing" by Marvin Gaye. When a TV reporter asked for a preview, Webb responded: "Not happening. I don't want to embarrass my mother like that." Asked if he was a good singer, Webb replied: "Not at all."
