You might remember the name Ramses Barden from the New York Giants SuperBowl winning team of 2012 but the wide receiver is looking to try his hand at Aussie Rules.

Barden is a cast member of an upcoming series called “American Footy Star” in which former NFL and NCAA players swap the gridiron for the oval Australian Rules pitch.

6’7, 224lbs Barden has headed Down Under after being cut from the Jacksonville Jaguars practice squad in August.

The 28-year-old, who was a third round draft pick in 2009, said: “I definitely believe there is a place for me in Australian Footy based on my athleticism, wide receiver skill sets, and my NFL experience.”

After watching this promotional video, we can’t begin to express our excitement.

Hat-tip to TMZ Sports for the video.
