The Huffington Post spoke to Emmitt, who said he thinks New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz might "kill it," but one of the most famous faces in the sport right now, Tim Bebow, would not.
"I don't think [Tebow] would do well on the dance floor," he explained. This might be linked to another opinion he shared: "Do I think black people dance better than white? Yes. I really don't know why." (Emmitt did admit that pop sensation Justin Bieber is "growing up with some swag.")
In the end, Emmitt thinks going on DWTS can be a "smart business move" for football players, as long as they go in with the right attitude, because the exposure can be positive or negative.
