Ex-New York Giant Michael Strahan Promises: ‘I Would Never Do Dancing With the Stars’

Michael Strahan is such a charismatic guy that despite announcing his retirement from the New York Giants and walking away from a 2008 salary of $4 million, he’ll undoubtedly find a job on TV that pays him almost as much as he made in the NFL.

But whatever that TV job is, it won’t be following in the footsteps of other NFL players Jerry Rice, Emmitt Smith and Jason Taylor on . Strahan made that clear to the New York Daily News:
“I would never do ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ ” Strahan says, trying to stifle a laugh. “I just picture Emmitt Smith as a football player, and he was a tough player. Then I look and he has some freakin’ tassles around his biceps. It’s not the same, it’s just not the freakin’ same.”
My first inclination is to agree with Strahan there: It does nothing for the tough image of an NFL player to see him dancing around on TV.

And yet, is such a popular show that does so much to help players reach a broader audience that really, can you blame a guy for doing it? I’m sure there will be an NFL player on every year, even if Strahan refuses to appear.
