'Dancing With the Stars': Jacoby Jones joins cast

Posted on

UPDATE (Feb. 26): Click to see Dancing With the Stars season 16 full cast.

ORIGINAL POST: The official cast announcement isn’t ’til Tuesday morning during Good Morning America, but ABC just named the first hoofer for season 16 in a promo during the Oscars: Baltimore Ravens wide receiver/kick return specialist Jacoby Jones. “He’s already won a Super Bowl ring,” a sporty announcer-type blared in the promo. “What’s he going to do next? DANCE.” Naturally! The 28-year-old joins a legacy of many proud Dancing With the Stars participants from the NFL, including winners Emmitt Smith, Hines Ward, and Donald Driver.

Check back Tuesday morning for EW.com’s photo gallery of the stars and pro partners.
