Wide receiver Antonio Brown has used his footwork to snare 38 career touchdowns with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Now we'll see if his athleticism can bring him a Mirror Ball trophy.

Brown will join the 22nd season of "Dancing with the Stars," as the wide receiver announced he is part of the cast during SportsCenter on Monday morning.

"Being able to move with good posture," Brown said when asked what the toughest part of preparing for the show has been. "As a football player, we want to move as explosive as we can with no technique and be as fast and fluid as we can. Just learning how to move with good posture and keeping my shoulders down."

He said being on the show could help him as a football player by making his movements more fluid.

Brown joins a lengthy list of NFL players and other athletes who have competed on "Dancing with the Stars," including Donald Driver, Michael Irvin, Jerry Rice, Emmitt Smith, Lawrence Taylor, Hines Ward, Apolo Anton Ohno, Helio Castroneves, Meryl Davis, Shawn Johnson, Lolo Jones, Sugar Ray Leonard, Metta World Peace and Kristi Yamaguchi.

One player who may have an opinion on Brown's potential dance moves is former Cleveland Browns punter Spencer Lanning, who famously took a Brown cleat to the face during a punt return in 2014.

The full "Dancing with the Stars" cast will be announced Tuesday on "Good Morning America." "Fuller House" star Jodie Sweetin has already been named as a contestant, and a source told ESPN that Denver Broncos defensive end Von Miller will compete as well.
