Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones will join a long, successful list of NFL players and former players who have competed in Dancing With the Stars.
Former Dallas Cowboys player Emmitt Smith, Former Pittsburg Steeler Hines Ward and Greenbay Packer Donald Driver have all won in their respective seasons of Dancing With the Stars. And now it's Jones' chance to add a dancing competition win after the Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl victory in February.

In an interview with Smirnoff for OTRC.com, Jones said his football experience, and dealing with criticism from coaches, will prepare him for dealing with the judges.
"When you're out there on the field, and you got like, 13 coaches cussing like 'Ey you,' you're like, 'All right, I'll get it right,'" he said.
But when it comes to the toughness of his dancing coach Smirnoff, Jones said he wants her to scare him.
"Be careful what you wish for," Smirnoff said to Jones, and they started laughing.
"Honestly, you know, I've seen the moves in the endzone. I saw the shoulders, the knee movements, the hips, so we're going to implement all of that into our dance in week one," Smirnoff said, then leaked that they will do the Cha Cha.
Dancing With the Stars premieres on March 18 on ABC.
