NY Giants RB Rashad Jennings says he wants to be the next Michael Sam ... 'cause he is itching for the opportunity to strut his stuff in front of the world on "Dancing with the Stars."
Jennings was out in NYC when we talked about his television watching habits ... and asked if he'd ever be down to trade in his cleats for dancing shoes to compete on 'DWTS,' a show he said he LOVES.
Check out the clip -- Rashad says 'DWTS' is definitely something he wants to do when his football days are over ... and is desperately hoping he gets the chance to prove it to producers.
Rashad also talks to us about his favorite cuts off the new Justin Bieber album ...
Never judge a book by its cover, people.
