Calvin Johnson to join DWTS, sister says he ‘can’t dance’
Calvin Johnson has already found a way to keep busy now that he has retired from the NFL — he’s going to dance.
It was revealed on “Good Morning America” Tuesday that Johnson will be one of the contestants on Season 23 of “Dancing With the Stars.” The former Detroit Lions wide receiver will join Ryan Lochte, IndyCar racer James Hinchcliffe, former GOP presidential candidate Gov. Rick Perry and others.
Megatron could run into a small problem, however. According to Johnson’s sister, he is going to have to work really hard to learn how to dance.
"He has no rhythm. Can't dance." — Calvin Johnson's sister
This is going to be fun!

The last NFL player who appeared on DWTS insisted the competition helped with his footwork on the field, but Johnson doesn’t need to worry about that anymore. Perhaps a dancing contest will help fill some of the void left by no longer playing football.
