'Dancing' Scores TD with Chad Ochocinco

3/1/2010 3:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chad OchoCincoNFL star Chad Ochocinco is known for his prolific end zone dances -- but now he'll be dancing ... with the stars.

Multiple sources tell TMZ the outspoken Cincinnati Bengal will be part of the cast of "Dancing with the Stars" this coming season.

Ochocinco joins a list of NFL stars who have done the show including Warren Sapp, Emmitt Smith and Jerry Rice.

A rep for ABC would not comment on potential cast members ... but did a great job of reminding us the official announcement comes tonight during the season finale of "The Bachelor."

Radar Online says Kate Gosslin will be on it also. It's on the top of the page. She's a wack job. But I have to say, when Jon's out with all his women in their 20's, she's with the kids.

Say no to football players. They too big, tough, ungraceful. They're terrible. They can't dance more maybe one or two cool moves that are boring for this level of competition.

What's with all the off-topic comments above? Sheesh...get with the program, will ya'?

I thought all the NFL players who were on DWTS were "former" players. Will the NFL even allow this? Won't that interfere with off season training?

This guy's an idiot. Told the wold via Bob Costas that he would change his last name back to Johnson if the cornerback for the Jets shut him down and Chad was shut down. Like the meaningless trash-talker Chad is, Chad "claimed" his ankle hurt but Revis wouldn't shut him down again.

Guess what, the same two teams played the very next week and Revis shut him down even worse than the week prior while Chad had a healthy ankle!

Guys like this are idiots. If you're going to open your massive mouth as much as you do, at least back it up when you make promises.

VERY talented guy whose very talent is diminished by his unshutable mouth.

What kind of name is Ochocinco? Isn't that eighty five in spanish?
I'm not a football fan so I've never heard of him. It just sounds like a made up name to me.

Loud and talentless    

The name doesn't represent his jersey number. It is his I.Q.
Glad he can catch a football because I'm not sure he would know how to operate a broom. Look for this idiot to be BROKE within about 3 years of the end of his career. Probably "makes it rain," regularly. Maybe he and PACthug can work at the car wash together.
