Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones is now a starter for the team after they decided to trade away former No. 1 Anquan Boldin, but right now he is focus on showing off his dance moves. Jones is on the latest season of Dancing With the Stars and he is hoping to follow in the footsteps of some of the football players before him that danced their way to a title.
Jones got off to a good start last week with the cha-cha and this week he performed a jazz routine with his partner Karina Smirnoff (again, lucky man).
The Ravens receiver recently recovered from offseason knee surgery, but if his moves on the dance floor are any indication then he is healthy and ready to go once the football season rolls around. I mean, he’s doing his thing on the dance floor, so the turf should be no problem.
During this week’s jazz routine, Jones and Smirnoff received a score of 23 out of 30.
Judge Carrie Ann Inaba said she was blown away by the routine, while Len Goodman said it was “fun and full of razzle dazzle and razzmatazz,” which I don’t think is a dance term, but surely a glowing endorsement.
Here is video of Jones’ week two performance?
Will Jones be able to follow in the footsteps of his fellow NFL stars on the show? He and Smirnoff will face the results on Tuesday night and learn whether or not they will advance.
