Jacoby Jones of the Ravens will have the opportunity of a lifetime this spring. He can join Emmitt Smith, Hines Ward and Donald Driver in the select group of Super Bowl champions who have also won on "Dancing With The Stars."

Jones will be one of four athletes in the field of 11 competitors. Skating legend Dorothy Hamill, Olympic gymnastics champion Aly Raisman and boxer Victor Ortiz are the others.

Jones, who scored two touchdowns to help the Ravens beat the 49ers in the Super Bowl, is known for his unique end-zone celebrations.

NFL players have fared well on the show. Jerry Rice, Jason Taylor and Warren Sapp each finished second, while Lawrence Taylor, Michael Irvin, Chad Ochocinco and Kurt Warner all advanced past the halfway mark of their seasons.

Athletes who have won the DWTS title are gymnast Shawn Johnson, figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi, speed skater Apolo Ohno and race driver Helio Castroneves.

In general, boxers have struggled on the show. Evander Holyfield was eliminated in the second week of the premiere season, while Floyd Mayweather Jr. lasted just four weeks. Sugar Ray Leonard placed ninth in the season that Ward won. Women's champ Laila Ali, though, did take third place her season, when Ohno won.

Other athletes who've competed: Hope Solo, Martina Navratilova, Metta World Peace, Chris Jericho, Rick Fox, Louie Vito, Chuck Liddell, Natalie Coughlin, Maurice Greene, Evan Lysacek, Ty Murray, Misty May-Treanor, Monica Seles and Clyde Drexler.

Here's a look at NFL players on the show:
