Currently no past or present professional male athletes have been linked to DWTS Season 24, which would mark the first time in the show’s history that has occurred. Current football players have been a popular choice during the spring seasons of DWTS as the male athletes are on hiatus from NFL training.

Dancing With the Stars premieres Monday, March 20, at 8 p.m. on ABC. The DWTS cast will be announced Wednesday, March 1, on Good Morning America.
