The Packers wideout will continue the legacy of athletes appearing on the reality program.

Donald Driver to Compete on Dancing With the Stars

The lineup for the newest season of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" was released today, and as always, athletes and singers are included in the field of "competitors" if you will.  Here is the complete cast:

Actor Jack Wagner of "Melrose Place" fame, TV star Melissa Gilbert, who became a household name as Laura Ingalls on "Little House on the Prairie," "The View" co-host Sherri Shepherd, and Jaleel White, best known as Steve Urkel from "Family Matters," are among this season's headliners.

Tennis legend Martina Navratilova, TV host Maria Menounos, Motown great Gladys Knight, opera singer Katherine Jenkins, Disney star Roshon Fegan, NFL champ Donald Driver, singer Gavin DeGraw and Telenovela actor William Levy round out the celebrity line-up.

Martina Navratilova is the most famous athlete in the field, although the younger generation will probably be more familiar with Packers' wideout Donald Driver.  Driver continues a long legacy of NFL players and "DWTS" which has included former champions Emmitt Smith and Hines Ward and second place finishers Jerry Rice and Warren Sapp.  He has some big shoes to fill.

It's well known that the show asked Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz to participate, but he politely declined.  Looking at the field, it seems like Cruz would have run away with the competition this season had he elected to join.  That salsa dance cannot be defeated.  What's Driver going to do, incorporate a Lambeau Leap into one of his dances?  Good luck with that.
