Von Miller is going from the Super Bowl to the ballroom.

The outside linebacker for the Denver Broncos was named MVP at this year's Super Bowl, and now he'll be competing for the mirror ball trophy on Dancing with the Stars, a source tells E! News. In addition to our insider intel, 9News, a local Denver affiliate, is also reporting that the NFL superstar will be trading in his cleats for dancing shoes on March 21, when season 22 premieres on ABC.

The 26-year-old Miller has already got a few moves of his own, according to both his touchdown celebrations and his appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, where he taught host James Corden a few things.  

As DWTS fans know, NFL players tend to do well in the competition, with Emmitt Smith, Donald Driver and Hines Ward winning, and Jerry Rice coming in second.

While ABC doesn't comment on casting rumors, Fuller House star Jodie Sweetin was unveiled as the first official cast member on Good Morning America earlier this week, while the morning show's very own Ginger Zee announced she would be competing on Friday. E! News also has sources telling us that America's Next Top Model winner Nyle DiMarco will be heading to the ballroom for season 22.

So far, we also know that Derek Hough will not be competing as a pro dancer, and that Julianne Hough will not be a judge this season. Len Goodman, however, will be back at the judges' table when season 22 debuts.

Dancing with the Stars returns March 21 on ABC. The entire cast will be announced on Good Morning America on March 8.
