One way or another, Kennard Backman's ability to make sharp cuts is going to get him paid. The 6-3, 245-pound tight end hopes his crisp route-running ability and sure hands land him a spot on the Packers' 53-man roster after being taken in the sixth round of the 2015 draft. Regardless, the former UAB standout will continue to pocket dollars by giving fresh haircuts. It's something he's been doing since he was 17, and has helped him become somewhat of a team barber during his time in Green Bay.  MORE: Top 10 Packers of all time | Davante Adams will throw down as Green Bay's No. 2 The former second-team All-Conference USA choice launched an Instagram account during his college days to showcase his skills with the clippers. It still has his cellphone number and email address in its bio. He's already cut several teammates, including linebackers Adrian Hubbard and Jayrone Elliott, and defensive back Tay-Glover Wright to rave reviews. And don't think he's limiting his services to professional athletes. The Georgia native said he's still accepting new clients. Just hit him him up. If he has time, he'll hook you up. "If it doesn't interfere with football, I'm down for it," Backman told Sporting News. "I'm down for anything as long as it doesn't interfere with football." He's caught four passes for 25 yards through two preseason contests, including matchups against the Patriots and Steelers. "It's a great feeling," he said. "Really, I'm blessed to have gotten drafted, and to have an opportunity with a great organization like the Packers."Backman didn't begin barbering until his senior year of high school. That's when he had to start paying for his own haircuts and the bi-weekly trips to the barbershop put a pounding on his teenage pockets. "I just made the investment, bought some clippers and decided to try it myself." His younger brother Kendrick, now a freshman at Savannah State (Ga.) was served as his guinea pig. Overtime, his skills improved. He picked up a few tricks of the trade from others, but said most of his learning came simply from watching others. "It was mainly by trial and error. Now, I really don't go to the barbershop too much." Check out Backman's work.  Just another day, hooked up my boy @dp_onethree #faded #andis #norazor #justskill #betterthanyourbarber #honest #uabfam #freeuab #deltastateA video posted by Kennard Backman (@kutzbyback) on Apr 9, 2015 at 2:40pm PDT A photo posted by Kennard Backman (@kutzbyback) on Mar 29, 2015 at 1:29pm PDT After #barbershopconnect #cleancut #laflarefade #waldo #andis #fade #bhambarbers #colombus #gaA photo posted by Kennard Backman (@kutzbyback) on Mar 19, 2015 at 1:29pm PDT New look for my boy!
