Back in March, Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson announced that he was retiring from the NFL, putting an end to his spotlight career as one of the best wide receivers in the league.
“After much prayer, thought and discussion with loved ones, I have made the difficult decision to retire from the Lions and pro football. I have played my last game of football,” he wrote then.
However, it seems the spotlight won’t be completely off of him because ET is reporting the former Lion is joining the cast of Dancing With the Stars.
The cast is formally going to be announced on Good Morning America on Tuesday morning. Season 23 of DWTS begins Monday, Sept. 12 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
