WATCH: Former MSU WR asks NFL team for tryout, says he will work for free
All Macgarrett Kings Jr. wants is a chance.
The former Michigan State wide receiver is desperate for a chance to make an NFL roster. In fact, he claims he is willing to work for free, just for a chance to show what he can do.
According to reporter Paxton Boyd, Kings is working out every day directly across the street from the Miami Dolphins training camp. His aim is simply to get a tryout and show the team what he is capable of.

Kings did have a rather successful career with the Spartans. He finished with 116 catches for 1,461 yards and 9 TDs from 2012-15. He also returned 50 punts for 366 yards over his four-year career.
Unfortunately, there is a long list of good college players who could not make it in the NFL. It looks like fans will just have to wait and see if Kings does in fact get his shot to make an NFL roster.
