Fellow NFL baller Chad Johnson was kind enough to give Terrell a bit of advice on partnering up with Burke, who dance with the Florida-native way back during season 10.
“He said it’s going to be a lot of work, but I expect nothing different,” Owens said in an interview with Good Morning America. “This is going to be a challenge for me, definitely. [It’s] definitely not in my wheelhouse. I danced as a little kid, but this is nothing like what I’m going to expect, I’m sure.”
