Jacoby Jones Made His Dancing With The Stars Debut Last Night… And He Was Really Good


Baltimore Ravens receiver and almost Super Bowl XLVII MVP Jacoby Jones has taken his newfound fame and supreme footwork to ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. He was really good on the season premiere, which isn’t surprising, considering the success of NFL players like Emmitt Smith, Jerry Rice, Hines Ward, Donald Driver and Warren Sapp. According to The Bachelor’s Sean Lowe, Jacoby is the man to beat. And who would know better than the born-again-virgin-star of an inexplicably popular reality show? Here’s Jacoby’s routine with Russian vodka mogul Ukrainian ballroom dancer, Karina Smirnoff. It’s surprisingly enthralling, like this John Harbaugh reaction GIF to Manti Te’o's 40-yard dash.

Even 30 Rock writer Tracey Wigfield agrees. And she doesn’t write for a sports blog, so she isn’t biased like us.

The Ravens may not be the team to beat this year, but Jacoby Jones in the man to beat on Dancing with the Stars. We’ll keep you posted on his progress.

    I knew Jacoby had some moves on the field, but he really tore it up last night on the dance floor. With all of the football fans out there and moves like that Jocoby really does seem like the man to beat. I nearly missed the premiere because I am traveling for my job at DISH this week. The hotel TV has the eastern feed, and it was already over by the time I tuned in, but thankfully I was able to stream it from my DVR at home to my iPad with DISH Anywhere.
