First 'Dancing With the Stars' contestant revealed
Jacoby Jones yet another NFL pro to hit the dance floor
NFL pro Jacoby Jones has been revealed as the first contestant on the upcoming season of "Dancing With the Stars." During Sunday's Academy Awards telecast and two days ahead of the official cast announcement on Tuesday, an advertisement for the upcoming season of the hit ballroom competition named Jones as the first star to take the TV dance floor.
Jones, a wide receiver for the Baltimore Ravens, is fresh off his Super Bowl win earlier this month, and he follows in the footsteps of fellow NFL pros Donald Driver, Hines Ward and Emmitt Smith, who all won the coveted mirrorball trophy in each of their respective seasons. The 16th season of "DWTS" begins March 18.
