So, picture this: a bunch of football stars, including LSU's Jayden Daniels, trading their game helmets for aprons, serving up crispy chicken in the heart of New York City at Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers joint. Why, you ask? Well, it's all part of the lead-up to the Heisman Trophy ceremony happening this Saturday night, and these guys decided to add a flavorful twist to their Heisman journey.

Daniels, who's already bagged the Associated Press Player of the Year title, is looking like the MVP in the race for the Heisman. With crazy impressive stats – 3,812 passing yards, 40 touchdowns, plus a mind-blowing 1,134 rushing yards and 10 more touchdowns – he's definitely the one to watch. And get this: the AP Player of the Year often predicts the Heisman winner, and Daniels seems to fit that bill perfectly.

Seems like Raising Cane's is the go-to spot for athlete fun these days. They've had Cincinnati Bengals' Ja'Marr Chase and former Georgia QB Stetson Bennett on board before, so having these Heisman hopefuls flipping chicken is just another day in the delicious world of sports promotions. And as we know Raising Cane's started off in Baton Rouge, so there's that hometown connection.

As we count down to the Heisman Trophy ceremony, this chicken-serving gig might just be the extra kick Jayden Daniels needs to claim the top prize. So, amidst the sizzle of chicken grease and the buzz of NYC, all eyes are on this quarterback as he guns for football greatness at the Heisman Trophy showdown.

Here is a sneak peek at what Jayden Daniels' Shift at Raising Canes looked like:
