When NFL running back Rashad Jennings stopped training to go compete on season 24 of Dancing with the Stars, he got an earful from many of his fellow athletes. All that quieted down, though, once the football pro showed off his moves week after week on the show, prompting many of the same guys who called him "twinkle toes" to ask for dance lessons.

Still, despite being crowned the latest Dancing with the Stars champ, Jennings told Desus and Mero on Monday that playing football is much easier than pulling off a graceful waltz.

"Football is in my DNA," he said. "I've never pointed my toes before in a dance."

The running back also told the VICELAND hosts about growing up thrifty, his least favorite music genre, and even showed off a few of his moves.
