Former Super Bowl and NFL wide receiver, Keyshawn Johnson, is one of 12 celebrity cast members who will appear on the upcoming 17th season of ‘Dancing With the Stars.’ The announcement of all 12 contestants came on Wednesday, September 4, on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Johnson will be paired with professional dancer Sharna Burgess and if NFL past perfomances are a gauge, Johnson could be a favorite.
