With Chad Ochocinco and the lovely Cheryl Burke eliminated from Dancing with the Stars, it looks like we have a local NFL candidate to replace Ochocinco next season.

Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann finished tied for first place in the Dancing Stars of Atlanta contest last Sunday, which raised funds for the Georgia Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association at The Foundry at Puritan Mill.

Biermann had a final score of 28 out of 30 to tie Georgia Tech assistant baseball coach Tom Kinkelaar for first place.

Biermann and his partner, Amber Reich of the Daza Dance Academy and Academy Ballroom danced “The Jive” to the Robert Palmer song “Bad Case of Loving You.”

Biermann, who brought his own pair of black professional dance pants for the event, helped raise more than $145,000.

Falcons president Rich McKay and wife Terrin McKay were there to support the event along with Falcons Board of Advisor member Ambassador Andrew Young (honorary chair) and his wife, Carolyn, who was also one of the dancers.

Maybe he can use his new “skills” to dance around the OTs he’ll face this year. It would probably rattle the QB if instead of sacking him he tries to do the hussle.

Orlando, did you watch any of the show? How good is he, really? Was it more a lack of competing talent, or can he legitimately cut the rug?
