Chad Ochocinco will compete on "Dancing with the Stars," according to TMZ. The show has previously featured former NFL stars Warren Sapp, Jerry Rice and Emmitt Smith. Jason Taylor is the only NFL player to appear on the show during his pro-football career.
It's possible that the Pro-Bowl receiver could be a formidable contestant. Followers of Ochocinco's Twitter feed are surely aware of his impressive physique, and he has demonstrated his workmanship as well: Ochocinco has spent time serving food at McDonald's and working for his new media outlet during Super Bowl XLIV media day. And he's familiar with popular TV shows as well; Ochocinco recently posted a photo with two "Jersey Shore" cast members.
Perhaps most importantly, Ochocinco has showcased his dancing ability on the football field during some of his elaborate touchdown celebrations. Scroll down for a sample.
