Ravens’ Jacoby Jones Joins ‘Dancing With The Stars’

BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones is the newest contestant to join TV’s “Dancing With the Stars.”

Jones was the first contestant announced for the show’s new season on Sunday night during a commercial that aired during ABC’s telecast of the Academy Awards. The other new contestants will be announced Tuesday on “Good Morning America.” The show premieres March 18.

Jones is known for his dance moves in the end zone following a touchdown.

Three other NFL players have won the competition, including Emmitt Smith, Hines Ward and Donald Driver.

Jones was one of the Ravens’ stars in their Super Bowl victory, scoring two touchdowns. He began his NFL career when he was drafted by the Houston Texans in 2009. He was signed by the Ravens last year.
