Former Missouri star defensive end Michael Sam is still looking to land with a new NFL team, but all of football will have a chance to see his footwork.

That’s because Sam is going to be on the next season of ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars.”

TMZ reported Monday that Sam had agreed to join the 20th season of the show.

On Tuesday, Sam confirmed it.

He will be dancing with Peta Murgatroyd.

Sam was drafted by the St. Louis Rams in last year’s NFL Draft, but he was cut before the regular season started. The Dallas Cowboys signed Sam to their practice squad before releasing him.
