The cast was announced on Tuesday's Good Morning America, and in addition to the athletes the group includes actress Suzanne Somers, singer Patti LaBelle and model Charlotte McKinney.

After the announcement, Sam tweeted that his primary goal is still making an NFL roster.

Both NFL players and gymnasts have a long history on the show, with Emmitt Smith, Hines Ward, Donald Driver and Liukin's 2008 Olympic teammate, Shawn Johnson, all taking home the competition's top prize.
