Jacoby Jones is looking forward to touchdown dances, not the other kind, and hopes that there’s not a Dancing With the Stars curse
The Ravens wideout is back at OTAs after finishing third on the reality dancing show, saying it’s no replacement for football work.
“My conditioning is good and I’m not sore,” Jones said, via the team’s official website. “I’ve just got to get my legs back under me, football-wise. It’s not like dancing. I still don’t feel like me. In a week, I’ll feel like me.”
He missed the offseason conditioning work, and a week of OTAs while on the television show.
He’s the fifth active player to compete on the show, and others have fallen off afterward.
But Jones thinks he’ll survive what Jason Taylor, Chad Johnson, Hines Ward and Donald Driver didn’t, since he’s the only one under 30 at the time of the taping.
“I’m on the younger side,” Jones said. “I’ll be fine. . . . As long as I get my legs back under me and cutting and stuff, I’ll be good.”
With Anquan Boldin gone, the burden will be on Jones to cut more than a rug this year, and if he responds, he’ll become even more of a star at his day job.
