Avowed Twitter fan Ashton Kutcher may have started his second online commotion of the week on Saturday, hinting that football great Lawrence Taylor could be headed for “Dancing With the Stars.”

“Just met LT, the old school, Lawrence Taylor,” Kutcher wrote on Twitter Saturday night. “Expect to see him in prime time soon. Can’t say where, but he better work on his foot work.”

Taylor wouldn’t be the first football star to put on his “Dancing” shoes –- former defensive end Warren Sapp made a big splash on the show’s seventh season, finishing as runner-up to winner Brooke Burke, and legendary running back Emmitt Smith won Season 3 with partner Cheryl Burke.

Former San Francisco 49er Jerry Rice was runner-up during Season 2, while current Washington Redskins defensive end Jason Taylor earned the same position during Season 6.

The eighth season of “Dancing” debuts in March. Earlier in the week, Ashton caused a stir when he took to his Twitter to complain about –- and later apologize to –- his neighbor after being woken early in the morning by construction work.
