Several professional football players have scored on the dance floor, but Fox NFL analyst Troy Aikman won’t be joining the club any time soon.

Aikman set off a wild ‘Dancing’ rumor Thursday after he was quoted by TMZ as saying he would be appearing on ‘Dancing with the Stars.’

“Heavens, no,” Aikman told the Dallas Morning News, shooting down the story. He apparently was just joking around with the cameraman when he was leaving an L.A. restaurant Wednesday night.

The ex-quarterback may be passing on the gig, but there is another Cowboy hitting the reality TV field this fall.

Aikman’s old boss, Dallas head coach Jimmy Johnson, will compete on the upcoming season of ‘Survivor.’

Aikman’s former Dallas teammates Emmitt Smith (who won the mirror ball trophy in 2006) and Michael Irvin have appeared on ‘DWTS,’ as well as NFL stars Jerry Rice, Warren Sapp, Jason Taylor, Lawrence Taylor and Chad Ochocinco.

The cast for Season 11 of ‘DWTS’ is expected to be announced in late August. The new season premieres Sept. 20th on ABC.
