That news was later confirmed when host Tom Bergeron tweeted:
“Jacoby Jones will dance this season. But if he pulls too far ahead, the 9ers will cut power to the ballroom.”
Around the same time as the tweet, a photo of Jones could be seen on the DWTS website, teasing the announcement of the cast for the new season, which is set to begin on March 18.
The entire DWTS cast is expected to be officially announced on Tuesday, February 26 on Good Morning America.
Jones, 28, played a big role in the Ravens’ Super Bowl XLVII victory against the San Francisco 49ers, returning a kickoff a playoff-record 108 yards for a TD and snaring a 56-yard touchdown reception in which he dove for the ball, got up, spun around a defender, and raced into the end zone untouched.
