Thanks to Outsports for the heads up. Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Dhani Jones is known as a Renaissance man for his interest in fashion—developing a line of high-end bow ties—and writing movie reviews and commentary. Now the oh-so-handsome footballer will add to his skill set by starring in Dhani Tackles the Globe, a new series on the Travel Channel where "he visits a number of countries and tries his hand at popular local sports."
Travel Channel's micro site says the 6'1, 240 pound footballer will try a number of sports, including surfing in Australia, rugby in England, and, Muay Thai boxing in Thailand. Oh and for those who prefer a some fur with their muscle, thankfully there is apparently a shirtless clause in Jones' contract. Here are a few stills of the boxing episode and there is shirtless (and hairy) video at Outsports.
Interested in Dhani Jones' other prime assets? The episode where Dhani plays rugby in England looks very promising ...
