The Pittsburgh Steelers are one of the more historical franchises in the NFL, and some of their own players have tried to make their own history on (the almost equally historical) Dancing With the Stars.
Hines Ward paved the way back in 2011, and five years later Antonio Brown is rumored to the next Steelers wideout to take his end zone dances mainstream.
While the contestants won’t be officially announced until March 8, there’s mounting speculation that Antonio Brown will be among them. Brown recently started following DWTS Twitter feed, so read into that what you will.
With the exception of Jerry Rice, NFL players have done well in the competition, as Ward, Emmitt Smith and Donald Driver all won their seasons on the show. Representing for the lineman, Warren Sapp finished second when he was on the show.
Brown has spent his entire six-year career with Pittsburgh, where he’s been named AFC Offensive Player of the Year (2014) and a four-time Pro Bowler. He was the first NFL player to record back to back seasons with at least 125 receptions and is one of only two players with 5,000+ receiving yards in a 3-year period.
