Emmanuel Acho hopes his voice is ticket to NFL roster


Free agency started almost five weeks ago and Emmanuel Acho is still looking for work.

The veteran linebacker, who spent parts of the last three seasons as a role player with the Philadelphia Eagles, had a unique idea for keeping his name on the radar as teams build rosters for offseason programs.

The power of song.

Is my service fine?/

The melody isn't an original, of course, nicked from John Legend and his No. 1 hit "All Of Me." Still, we wouldn't be writing about Emmanuel Acho on a slow Sunday in April if it weren't for his creative burst of personal billboarding. Perhaps a team will similarly take notice.

Crazier ideas have worked.
