There’s word that Michael Sam may be shaking his booty in the ballroom on the next season of “Dancing With the Stars.”
He won’t be hitting the field with the St. Louis Rams any time soon, but TMZ.com reports that the openly gay NFL player has signed on for season 20 of “DWTS.” The official cast has yet to be announced, but leaks like these happen every cycle.
NFL players have done pretty well in the competition as both Hines Ward and Emmit Smith have won the coveted Mirrorball Trophy in the past.
The only potential hiccup in his training for “DWTS” is the NFL veteran’s combine on March 22. This could pose a huge conflict as Michael may not be devoting his full attention to either “DWTS” or the NFL during this time.
