Top 15 Craziest Breakups in NFL History

Living with an NFL football player can have its upsides, but it can be no surprise that a lot of the time these relationships end in tears. With all the millions of dollars and fame that comes with partnering up with a footballer, the win-at-all-costs mentality has knock-on effects that impact on their private lives. It’s easy to flick on the competitive switch come game time, it’s switching it off again that’s the problem.

NFL players have a history of attitude and perspective problems. Pick up a newspaper, listen to the radio or watch the 6 o’clock news and you will see what we mean. Whether it’s cheating on their spouse, talking trash or getting in hot water with law enforcement – it quickly dawns on a lot of these women that they were in over their heads opting into a relationship with these people. The majority of them are good family men, yet every group has their bad apples.

With marriage breakdowns becoming all the more common in society, the couples that make it last under the spotlight deserve the credit. In the NFL arena the likes of Russell Wilson and Ciara, Tony Romo and Candice Crawford, and of course, Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen, all thrive as a pairing in their private lives. When it works, it can be incredibly lucrative because the paparazzi and sponsors end up eating out of their hands.

In most cases footballers don’t marry or hook up with megastar celebrities. Sometimes they will be childhood sweethearts or just women who catch the attention. Outside of the initial attraction there can be little rhyme or reason why some of them hook up, so it’s any wonder why people are shocked when the break up is announced to the world. Most of them move on quite quickly and it all becomes yesterdays news.

But lets take this time to look back at the 15 breakups involving NFL footballers that we did notice.

With the OJ Simpson story being revived and retold on HBO’s upcoming American Crime Story, those new to the story will get an insight into what happened during the most infamous trial in US history. Those who already know may pick up some new details, but the death of his second wife Nicole Brown came years after the pair initially started an affair while he was still with his wife Marguerite Whitley. The legendary Bills running back’s life spiraled out of control thereafter and it all started when his relationship with Whitley broke apart. Given what transpired it has to be considered the biggest separation by an NFL player.
