It’s been quite an eventful few months for Denver Broncos star linebacker Von Miller.

On the football field, Miller dominated Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship (2.5 sacks), before dominating Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers in the Super Bowl (Super Bowl MVP).

Since, he’s been franchise tagged by the Broncos, and could soon become the highest paid defensive player in NFL history (although he says he may be willing to take a “hometown discount” from Denver… whatever that means).

And now, it appears Von Miller will become a contestant on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars:

Who will he battle? Reports say Donald Trumps ex-wife Marla Maples and “The O.C.” actress Mischa Barton have also signed on for season 22 (!) of the dancing show.

The good news for Von? Athletes have typically done very well on “Dancing with the Stars,” with Emmitt Smith, Apolo Anton Ohno, Helio Castroneves, Kristi Yamaguchi, Shawn Johnson and others among past winners of the legendary disco bowl trophy.

Miller has certainly been known for his sack celebration dances (a couple of which resulted in fines), but it remains to be seen if ABC would let some of his moves be on the family program…
