Being a young star on one of the most popular sports franchises in the world has its perks. You're loved by millions of fans and your higher athlete profile can lead to some enticing outside romances - or distractions, depending on how you play. You can go from being an up-and-coming outsider to dating supermodels within months. It's what young athletes like Auston Matthews, Lonzo Ball, and others are doing and Dak Prescott is no different. In fact, it's one thing to be a star on the Toronto Maple Leafs or the Los Angeles Lakers, but it's an entirely different feeling being the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys - just ask Tony Romo, who happened to marry model Candice Crawford in 2011.
Prescott can certainly reach Romo's level of fame on the field if he continues to develop in the coming years, but he's already at Romo's level off the field, as he is dating stunning Instagram model Yasmine Nicole. Now, we certainly recommend you checking out her Instagram feed if you're a straight, red-blooded male (hell, even straight women can appreciate her incredible body), but we can't say for certain that Prescott has the best WAG in the NFL. In fact, we've compiled a list of 15 WAGs who just might have Nicole beat.
15 Kelly Hall (Matt Stafford)
Matt Stafford is undeserving of his status as the highest-paid player in the NFL. Think about it for a second. It's not Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Todd Gurley, or Antonio Brown - it's the chubby-faced Detroit Lions quarterback who has won a grand total of ZERO playoff games through nine seasons in the league. And if that wasn't enough to infuriate you, consider that Stafford also has one of the hottest WAGS in the league in Kelly Stafford (nee Hall).
A lot of the women on this list are Instagram models or video vixens who love to show off their sexuality. Kelly isn't like that, but it's evident that the mother of twins is a damn hottie, even less than a year after giving birth. Stafford truly is winning at life, even if he has to play for the Lions.
14 Gisele Bundchen (Tom Brady)
Thank you @stellamccartney for my beautiful and sustainable dress, crafted from sustainably sourced viscose from sustainably certified forests in Sweden. Thank you Lívia @ecoage for all that you do to make fashion sustainable. #GreenCarpetChallenge #SustainableFashion #GCFAItalia 🙏🏼✨💃🏼 🌎 Obrigada @stellamccartney pelo meu vestido lindo e sustentável, feito a partir de viscose de origem sustentável de florestas certificadas da Suécia. Obrigada Lívia por tudo que você faz para fazer fashion ser sustentável.
Maybe you expected Giselle to be much higher on this list - and you can call me us morons for not doing so - but the super model is actually a little plain for some. Don't get us wrong, she's incredibly beautiful, hence her former job title, but nothing about her really screams sexy. She's adorable, cute, beautiful, and magnificently charming, but we're not picking her ahead of the other women on this list. In fact, we would even venture to say if she were married to Charlie Whitehurst and not Tom Brady, she might not even be on this list.
Yet, she is indeed married to Brady, and because of that she has a whopping 13.7 million followers on Instagram. The model has been retired from the runway since 2015, but has recently done work with Vogue Japan and Versace.
13 Ciara (Russell Wilson)
Call us crazy, but we'd take Ciara over Gisele any day of the week, even if it meant I might finally unite Future and Russell Wilson to come after me. Most of you by now know Ciara as the wife of the Seattle Seahawks quarterback, but she previously dated - and had a child with - rapper Future. She now has a child with both men and is somehow even hotter at 32 years old than she was when she broke onto the music scene with her hit single "Goodies," in which she correctly predicted that we all want said goodies.
Ciara hasn't let motherhood completely take over her life as she still performs regularly and even does so in racy attire, which we're quite thankful for. The Seahawks missed the playoffs for the first time in six seasons, but Wilson probably isn't too disappointed given he gets to spend his time with Ciara instead.
12 Kristin Cavallari (Jay Cutler)
In keeping with celebrity WAGS, we come to Kristin Cavallari, who is a a major star, if you consider reality TV "actors" stars. The 30 year old is a published author who has appeared on Dancing with the Stars and became famous through being on Laguna Beach and its subsequent spinoff The Hills. The blonde bombshell is still a hottie despite being a mother of three and has even said she wouldn't let her children do reality TV, so she at least has some brains as well.
It's somewhat surprising that she's married to Jay Cutler. The Miami Dolphins quarterback isn't a bad-looking dude by any stretch of the imagination, but he just seems so careless and uninterested on the field that you wouldn't be surprised to learn he has the personality of a piece of cardboard. Apparently, he - and his money - is good enough for Cavallari.
11 Kia Proctor (Cam Newton)
We make fun of Cam Newton's ridiculous hats, but if they're what attracted Kia Proctor, we all may have to reconsider our stance on looking like a 19th century ivory dealer. The Carolina Panthers quarterback has been dating the 30 year old Maryland native for over four years and have two children together, including a third child from Kia's previous relationship. They aren't married, but if their Instagram posts are any indication they already have the perfect family.
It's also easy to understand why Newton would have had no issues dating Kia even though she already had a child; the woman is an absolute smokeshow and in phenomenal shape, especially when you consider she gave birth to three children. Do yourself a favor and follow her on Instagram.
10 Morgan Kauffmann (Chris Boswell)
Don't ever let anyone tell you that being a kicker is the worst job in all of professional sports. Sure, you hardly get to play and you're also under intense pressure and scrutiny with every kick, but you can also apparently hook up with beautiful women. If you've ever thought that only quarterbacks or other offensive and defensive star players get the chicks, look no further than Chris Boswell, the Pittsburgh Steelers kicker who is dating Morgan Kauffmann.
Kauffmann might not have the profile that some of the other women on this list has, but she's a fine combination of adorable and sexy in a girl next door kind of way. In fact, as far as we can tell, the native of Arlington, Texas was previously an assistant manager at Flexi and, before that, worked at Planet Beach Contempo and Forever 21.
9 Sasha Gates (Antonio Gates)
If you're thinking players who might have had WAGs that could rival Dak Prescott's, you probably aren't thinking old man Antonio Gates; heck, you probably forgot he was still in the league. The 37 year old is still playing with the Los Angeles Chargers and, despite playing in a limited role behind Hunter Henry, says he still wants to play beyond 2017. He must truly love the game, because his other option would be to retire and spend time with his wife, Sasha Gates (nee Dindayal).
The couple has been married since 2011 and it has since been relatively quiet for the former video vixen. Before marrying Gates, the laundry list of rumors that surrounded her included that she was engaged to Marcellus Wiley (which is true) and that she cheated on him - dated director Hype Williams and cheated on him; and that she essentially had a sham Green Card marriage at one point (she's from Canada). Hell, if she looks like that, we'd ignore the rumors too.
8 Marissa Powell (Kyle Van Noy)
A second-round pick of the Detroit Lions in the 2014 NFL Draft, Kyle Van Noy is an outside line backer who is now finding success in his fourth season in the league and, not coincidentally, his first full season with the New England Patriots. As if going from Detroit to New England wasn't a good enough gift, he got to take his beautiful wife, Marissa Powell, with him.
If the name sounds familiar, it's because Powell was named Miss Utah in 2013 and competed in the Miss USA competition, where she had an awkward answer to a question regarding the salary gap between men and women but still managed to finish as the third runner-up. That was probably because she's a stunning brunette beauty with model-like looks and big, bright, blue eyes.
7 Camille Kostek (Rob Gronkowski)
While it's unsure if New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is still dating Camille Kostek (although her Instagram account still shows her rocking Patriots gear as recent as mid-December), we'd be remiss if we didn't include the former Patriots cheerleader. Back in July, she was chosen by Sports Illustrated as one of its 15 finalists for its rookie swimsuit model search, and with good reason.
In a recent New York Post story, she stated that, "I don't want to be quoted [about Gronk] anymore. This is the year of Camille ... It's been refreshing to have it be about me." If her growing fan base is any indication, it will be the year of Camille. Despite being a relatively unknown in the world of modeling at this point, she already has over 144,000 Instagram followers, likely in part due to her connection to Gronk.
6 Katherine Webb (AJ McCarron)
Veteran broadcaster Brent Musburger said it best when describing the then-girlfriend of quarterback AJ McCarron: "You quarterbacks, you get all the beautiful women, woah!" It doesn't quite sound as creepy on paper as it does to hear him fawn over the young lady, but trust me, it was awkward to say the least. That lady, Katherine Webb, who is a former Miss Alabama, later thanked Musburger in a tweet for helping to make her famous, but she certainly didn't need his help.
In addition to being Miss Alabama in 2012, Webb was part of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition in 2013. She's a natural beauty with enticing, bright green eyes and a pretty smile to boot. McCarron might not have one-tenth of the talent as Tom Brady, but we firmly believe he can at least say he has a hotter wife.
5 Chanel Iman (Sterling Shepard)
Speaking of wives, one NFL player who recently became engaged is New York Giants second-year wide receiver Sterling Shepard. The Oklahoma alumnus popped the question to his supermodel girlfriend Chanel Iman in early December, the night before the Giants 24-17 loss to the Oakland Raiders. The couple first met in early 2016 at Victor Cruz's birthday party and they have been together ever since: "I walked up to her and bought her a drink and it was over after that," Shepard told People this past July.
For his part, Shepard is a rising star on the Giants, but he might not have the worldwide fame as Iman, who has over 1.5 million followers on Instagram due to her modeling work combined with the fact she's a ridiculously hot woman.
4 Chelsea Diznee (Mark Ingram)
You might be well past the age of wanting to ever go to Disney, but there's likely few things that would keep you from wanting to meet Chelsea Diznee, the wife of New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram. Diznee is a 27 year old former video vixen and fitness model who has been dating Ingram for quite some time as the couple has two children. She's actually pregnant again with the couple's third child, but continues to work on her body; it seems likely that, given her dedication to fitness, she'll be tight and toned in no time.
And if you need a reference point, look no further than her Instagram account, which includes racy pre- and post-pregnancy workout photos (she basically had a six-pack within nine months of having a child, which is amazing).
3 Ashley Nicole Roberts (Philip Wheeler)
A third-round pick of the Indianapolis Colts in the 2008 NFL Draft, Philip Wheeler is a linebacker who most recently played for the Atlanta Falcons, but was unsigned during the 2017 offseason. That isn't going to stop us from including his ridiculously hot wife, Ashley Nicole Roberts, who he married earlier in 2017 in Curacao.
Both Wheeler and Roberts have been featured on WAGS Miami, with the latter easily being one of the hottest on the show. For starters, she has a beautiful face that is matched by a fantastic body with plenty of fine "assets." She looks great whether she's rocking braided or straight hair, a racy dress or workout gear, or her military get-up - yeah, she's even a Reserves Captain in the United States Army.
2 Sara Cardona (Eric Saubert)
It's not always the big names that have the most impressive WAGs. Atlanta Falcons tight end Eric Saubert is a prime example of that. The backup to emerging tight end Austin Hooper was selected in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft and had a grand total of zero catches this season. Even the most hardcore NFL fans might have a hard time recognizing him. In fact, a Google search of his name even has news of his relationship on the front page; that's how little he is known.
However, his girlfriend is worth discussing. Saubert is dating ESPN Nashville sideline reporter Sara Cardona, who was previously linked to the son of Cris Collinsworth. Cardona made the relationship official this past Christmas by posting a photo of her and Saubert wearing Santa hats by the Christmas tree. A quick scan of her Instagram account proves she just may be the hottest sportscaster you haven't heard about.
1 Claudia Sampedro (Julius Peppers)
It's not only the young players in the league who are linking up with beautiful supermodels with quite a presence on social media. In fact, 37 year old defensive lineman Julius Peppers, who is experiencing a resurgence on the field this season, is doing incredibly well for himself off the field. The Carolina Panther is dating WAGS Miami star Claudia Sampedro, who is, not surprisingly, a model, with an Instagram following of over one million.
A native of Havana, Cuba, Sampedro is nine years younger than Peppers and has been dating him since 2014. She has had one child with Peppers, but you would never guess it given the phenomenal shape she is in. To be honest, she may just have the best booty in the world. And that's not even an exaggeration.
