Von Miller will dance with the stars

The next time Von Miller does “three pumps,” he’ll be applauded, not fined.

The free-agent linebacker and Super Bowl 50 MVP will appear on the next season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, according to Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post.

The show debuts on March 21; if Miller has success, he’ll be absent for a portion of the offseason workout program. Since he’s not signed, however, Miller probably wouldn’t have been showing up for the offseason program anyway.

At least he’ll be staying in shape, albeit in an unconventional way.

    Ugh. Already? Sad.

    Honestly, intense training on some different dance forms/moves will only fine tune his already nasty pass rush

    Other players get scolded by PFT for playing a single basketball game, but Miller gets a pass for a strenuous, months-long, nonessential performance that carries as much or more risk of injury?

    Both things sound okay to me, but aren’t being reported on in the same way.

    The dude is super bowl mvp. I know haters/trolls will talk this down completely, but let the man enjoy himself. One of the hardest workers in the league since DWare came to mentor.

    good for him. good luck!

  6. hrmlss says: Mar 3, 2016 9:38 PM

    That will help……

    He will not dance with the stars.

    He will dance with a professional dancer.

    He is the Star.

    Geez Von. Why? Fun is fun, but focus. Why get caught up in this distracting stuff. Is this a marketing ploy for your brand? Not necessary.

    Not my cup of tea, but good for him. He earned it. Probably gonna be good, too.

    Right on Von, hope you got that T-Bag “special move” you used on Tom Shady for all them hits/hurries/sacks in the championship game saved for the finals…guaranteed DWTS champ if so.

    Big Von, the new face of the NFL!

    It seems every NFL star who goes to “Dancing with the Stars” is retiring and unwanted next offseason.

  14. jvillenole says: Mar 3, 2016 10:48 PM

    Hines Ward, Emmit Smith, and Donald Driver all won the whole thing. Jerry Rice and Warren Sapp finished second. The NFL contestants usually do pretty good.

    “Carlton Banks” won it too.

    He’s come a long way from 6 game suspensions to mvp to dwts.

  16. rcali says: Mar 3, 2016 10:59 PM

    Oh Dear.

  17. vicksdawgpound says: Mar 3, 2016 11:14 PM

    Probably the lamest show he could have chosen to do.

  18. hockeyflow30 says: Mar 3, 2016 11:34 PM

    Wow, seems like a gigantic risk with all that money on the line.

  19. beauregard says: Mar 3, 2016 11:47 PM

    Von is a really, really athletic nerd. He’ll do very well on DWTS.
    Indeed, he has come a long way since his six-game suspension. He’s one of the guy’s who recognized he’d be out of the league if he didn’t change his ways, regardless of talent. Good on him.

  20. streetyson says: Mar 4, 2016 8:09 AM

    From dirty playing to dirty dancing!

  21. noleitup says: Mar 4, 2016 9:29 AM

    I’ll never forget that Hingle McCringleberry celebration. Vons gonna kill it on DWTS

  22. DawgPound83 says: Mar 4, 2016 9:46 AM

    Watch him tear an ACL dancing on live television.

  23. saveusterrelldavis says: Mar 4, 2016 9:48 AM

    Somewhere Odell Beckham heard this news and started dancing through a warehouse like Kevin bacon

  24. wallabear says: Mar 4, 2016 9:49 AM

    One would suppose that Miller will “dope up” for this, too, to win that golden trophy SMH

  25. mmack66 says: Mar 4, 2016 10:23 AM

    Hope he doesn’t wear those lady eyeglasses.

  26. Rdog says: Mar 4, 2016 10:34 AM

    Cam Newton is so jealous right now

  27. Patskrieg says: Mar 4, 2016 11:36 AM

    It’s an hour long show of just people ballroom dancing.
