Report: Antonio Brown could be latest member of the Steelers to participate in "Dancing With The Stars"

New, comments

The Pittsburgh Steelers have had their share of talent on the football field, and one of their greatest WRs in franchise history had some success off the field on the "Dancing with the Stars" show. Is Antonio Brown the next athlete to grace the dance floor?

Athletes are competitive human beings. Professional athletes take competitiveness to the extreme. It is no wonder why the likes of Emmitt Smith, Hines Ward, Jerry Rice and Jacoby Jones have all tried their hand at something other than football. How about dancing on the hit show 'Dancing with the Stars'.

Former wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers Hines Ward won the 'Dancing with the Stars' championship the season he decided to try his hand at the different styles of dance, and there might be a new member of the Steelers brushing up on his moves this Spring when the show airs.

No, it isn't quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, but wide receiver Antonio Brown. The charismatic All-Pro seems to be the perfect fit for something like this, but at this point any reports on the matter are merely speculation.

There will be those fans who will mock or ridicule a football player for participating in such an activity, but the truth is dancing can be a tremendous workout and help increase endurance, balance and flexibility. In the 1970s, football fans turned their nose up at Lynn Swann for taking ballet lessons to prepare for the season, but the Hall of Fame wide receiver certainly got the last laugh.

If Brown is indeed going to take part in the competition, the official announcement will be on 'Good Morning America' on March 8th, with the first official episode airing on March 21st.
