There are some things that don’t mix in life. For example, water and oil. You put those two things together, shake furiously, and surprisingly you won’t get any mixture.
The same goes for NFL players and music albums. It’s not that it’s impossible for an NFL player to make a good album, it’s about as likely as water mixed with oil.
Here are five former and current NFL players who attempted to make what most people would call music and failed miserably.

Before you start looking at full albums, it would be a crime not to include some classic sports musicians who only release one song. Here are the best athlete musicians in music history:
Chicago Bears: Super Bowl Mix
As you can see in the video above, if the Chicago Bears of 1985 had put together a full album, they would have landed at the top of this list without hesitation. However, they gave us this absolute gem, and who can complain?
LaDainian Tomlinson: LT Slide Power Slide
If There Was A Second Place After The Super Bowl Shuffle In Horror, LT Electric slide would it be. All I want to know is how can I wear a pure white suit with tennis shows.
Adam “Pacman” Jones: Let Him Shine
While we could definitely see Jones and his band called Posterboyz release an album in the near future, at the moment they only have one song titled let it shine. Hopefully they end up releasing this album because this single screams horribly.

Asking an athlete to create a music album is generally a bad idea, but asking an athlete to create a Christmas album is a really bad idea.
The only reason Ben Utecht (or Benjamin as he now likes to be called) ranks so low on the list is because he actually has a pretty decent voice. He can certainly carry a melody and can sound a note when needed.
Unfortunately, the only singers who can release successful Christmas albums are really old men or young women. Utecht does not fit into any of these categories.

Not only was Kyle Turley an aggressive player on the court, he became an aggressive musician off the court.
His last album, Death, drugs and DoubleCross, is a testament to the fact that Turley didn’t banish his helmet throwing days. In fact, a look at the album cover might even make you think Turley has been throwing away more than just helmets these days.
Of all the athlete-turned-musicians, Turley is probably the most successful, but that doesn’t mean the music is good.

For those of you who are too young to know that Terry Bradshaw has released an album, you’re about to be blown away: he’s actually released five albums. Indeed, his first single, I’m so alone I could cryan old Hank Williams song, actually reached No. 17 on the Top 100 in the United States.
However, after some time away from music, Bradshaw released Sing Christmas songs for the whole world in 1996. Like I said before, there are just some people who shouldn’t put out Christmas albums, and athletes definitely fall into that category.
Let’s just say that Bradshaw should have stuck to remaking old Hank Williams songs instead.

Free Reign is made up of NFL offensive linemen Marc Colombo, Leonard Davis and Cory Proctor. Not only does this band play heavy-metal music, but they also happen to weigh over 900 pounds.
In fact, just the thought of three 300-pound men banging their heads on stage makes me want to start laughing uncontrollably.

I believe if you watch Exhibit A in the video above, you will realize that Deion Sanders and Prime time winning the award for “Worst Album by an Athlete of All Time” in a landslide victory. This contest wasn’t even close.
The crazy thing about this album is that it actually had some success in the US, reaching #70 on the hip-hop charts. What’s even crazier is this pink suit that Deion is wearing.
My advice is to sit down, turn up the volume on your computer, and be ready to roll around on the floor laughing after a few seconds of It must be the money.
