Antonio Brown could be on next season of ‘Dancing with the Stars’


While no one in the know will say anything one way or the other, some recent social media activity by Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has given rise to the suspicion that he might very well be one of the featured celebrities on the next season of “Dancing with the Stars.”

Perhaps the producers of the show saw the following footage, which highlights some of Brown’s better touchdown celebration moves:

But maybe not this move.

Brown recently started following the official Twitter account of “DWTS” as well as Sharna Burgess, one of the dancers on the show, according to a report from, a site presumably as plugged in as one can get in matters such as these.

Commenting on the recent developments concerning Brown’s Twitter account and a surge in social media interest in the show, the website writes, “It happens every season.”

Steelers officials at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis indicated they had no knowledge of whether or not Brown would be appearing on the show and referred any questions concerning the player’s plan to his agent, Drew Rosenhaus.

When reached for comment, Rosenhaus would only say “check back in a few days.”

If Brown is in fact a cast member on the upcoming 22nd season of the show, he will be the third Steelers player to do so, joining Hines Ward and Jacoby Jones. Other NFL players who have appeared on the show boasts a laundry list of football greats, including, Michael Irvin, Chad Johnson, Lawrence Taylor, Kurt Warner, Jerry Rice, Warren Sapp, Jason Taylor, Emmitt Smith and Donald Driver, among others.

The cast for the upcoming season will be officially announced on “Good Morning America” on March 8.
