After telling a TMZ reporter he was going to appear on ABC’s "Dancing With the Stars" in the upcoming season, former NFL quarterback Troy Aikman now says he was just kidding, reports the New York Daily News.
Via his Twitter account, Aikman said, "I will not be on ‘DWTS’ … interferes with ‘American Idol’ auditions."
Aikman is also a Fox NFL analyst. A representative for Fox reported that Aikman was just joking around when he made the original claim.
Aikman’s Dallas Cowboys teammate Emmitt Smith won “Dancing With the Stars” in the show’s third season.
