Ravens' Jacoby Jones to compete on DWTS

Did you see it -- the commercial during the 85th Academy Awards about Jacoby Jones of the Baltimore Ravens?

According to the ABC promotion, Jones will be participating in the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars.

Tom Bergeron, host of Dancing with the Stars sent the following tweet following the commercial:

"Jacoby Jones will dance this season. But if he pulls too far ahead, the 9ers will cut power to the ballroom."

Around about the same time, a huge photo of Jones could be seen on the DWTS web page, teasing the announcement of the cast of the new show, set to return March 18.

The entire case of DWTS is expected to be officially announced on Tuesday, February 26 on Good Morning America.

Jones' endzone dancing got plenty of attention this year, especially after his standout performance in Super Bowl 47.

Humbly speaking about his record-breaking kickoff return after the game, Jones said, "That's hats off to the 10 guys that blocked in front of me."

In addition to record-setting  the 108-yard kickoff return at the start of the second half in Super Bowl 47, Jones had a 56-yard touchdown reception in which he caught the ball as he fell to his bottom, got up, shook two defenders and took the ball to the house.
