After helping the Baltimore Ravens win Super Bowl 47 with one of the greatest kickoff returns in league history, Jacoby Jones wanted one thing when he appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel show two days later.
Jones told Kimmel he wanted to be a contestant on Dancing With The Stars. Pro Football Talk is reporting that the guy with some of the best touchdown dances in the NFL will get his shot to do what Emmitt Smith, Jerry Rice, and Hines Ward have all done before him.
The announcement was made in a commercial break during the Academy Awards of the Oscars. The remaining contestants will be announced on Tuesday.
