Report: Antonio Brown will join Von Miller on 'Dancing with the Stars'
When football season ends, planning for the new season begins. Free agents become hot commodities for other teams, while coaches are already planning for next season. Those who have cushioned contracts can enjoy their time off, while keeping in shape for the next time they are on the field. Before the new season begins however, some athletes just want to have fun.
There have been several players who have been a part of television and film programs outside of their NFL comfort zone. We've seen Victor Cruz on Ballers, and Brett Favre inThere's Something About Mary. Something that trumps regular entertainment in America however are dance contests. Super Bowl MVP Von Miller will be on ABC'sDancing with the Stars, and he might not be alone. It is being reported that Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown will join Miller on the show's 22nd season.

Brown is coming off of a year where he scored 10 touchdowns on a career-high 1,834 receiving yards. The show would be a perfect fit for Antonio Brown. Whenever Brown scores a touchdown, he is always looking to have a good time. Brown is known for his funky dance moves in the end zone.
If true, both players would have the opportunity to join various football stars who have competed in and won the dance competition. Players like Emmitt Smith in season three, Hines Ward in season twelve and Donald Driver in season fourteen. Von Miller will be looking to put the DWTS trophy next to his Super Bowl MVP trophy, while Antonio Brown will be looking to join Hines Ward as the second Steelers player to win.
Dancing With The Stars will have its live premiere on March 21. Until then, the players will need to learn to trade in their football cleats for dancing shoes.
