Being a professional football player certainly comes with its fair share of perks. Not only do even the most insignificant and terrible players have a chance to be in the spotlight and earn big dollars, they also seem to hook up with some of the sexiest women in the world. Sometimes the women in their lives turn out to be gold-diggers but often enough they find talented and faithful women who stand by them through thick and thin.
Some NFL WAGs have achieved stardom and success prior to hooking up with their men. They have their own careers that will often outlast an NFLer's playing days. They are under constant scrutiny from the public and they need to adapt to the football lifestyle. This means that they need to sacrifice breakfast in bed with their sweet-hearts on most Sundays. They need to accept that their significant other's time will be consumed in training, practice and playing games. Most NFL WAGs make these sacrifices while looking great doing it. The players can take comfort in knowing that at the end of a hard day on the gridiron, they can go home to the comfort of a beautiful woman. These ladies are just one reason why it's easy to be jealous of NFLers.
20 Kendra Wilkinson
NFL wide receiver Hank Basket had an unremarkable NFL career. While he had some early success, he faded into obscurity and was out of the NFL after just five seasons. Just before his playing days came to an end, he married Playboy model Kendra Wilkinson in 2009. He’s been riding her coat-tails ever since.
Wilkinson met Hugh Hefner in 2004 and her career took off. She appeared in magazines, on television and even had an adult tape. Kendra and Hank have two children together but she hasn’t completely settled down. She is busy appearing in reality television shows and is trying to get Hank into the business as well. She’s one smart NFL WAG.
19 Candice Crawford Romo
Tony Romo might be prone to fumbling the football, but he definitely knows how to hold on to a pretty woman. Romo began dating Candice Crawford in 2009 and the two married in 2011. Tony and Candice ran a kind of hurry-up offense of their own to produce two children.
The 29 year old blue-eyed stunner held the title of Miss Missouri in 2008 and went on to finish in the top 10 at the Miss USA Pageant. She also has a good brain to compliment her looks. She studied journalism and business at the University of Missouri. It is easy to understand why Tony Romo’s mind is sometimes not in the game.
18 Sasha Dindayal
She has appeared in music videos, in magazines, and in a few dreams. Sasha Dindayal might not have the most solid of reputations when it comes to relationships but she does have a pretty solid body. The ex-model turned business woman and television personality has been the subject of many unflattering rumors that revolve around infidelity. The rumor and speculation didn’t stop San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates from marrying Sasha in 2011. The couple seems to be doing well and have a child together. Antonio Gates’ football career is winding down and it looks certain that Sasha will be keeping him busy in his retirement.
17 Sarah Hinton
On the gridiron, San Francisco 49ers tight end Garrett Celek might live in the shadows of his brother Brent, but Garrett has scored big off the field. Garrett found himself a beautiful Hooters bikini model and married her in 2013. With blonde hair, blue eyes and a jaw-dropping body, Sarah Hinton could have had any man on earth but she set her heart on the undrafted Garrett. She even continued to work at Hooters until Garrett was able to land a playing contract with the Niners. It would be hard to accuse her of being a gold-digger. Garrett will likely never have a better catch.
16 Samantha Ponder
It’s pretty safe to say that Samantha Ponder has had a more successful football career than her husband Christian. Samantha is known for her fine work as an ESPN sideline reporter, while Christian’s NFL career has ground to a halt after no teams expressed interest in signing him this season.
Samantha recently retired from her job in order to take care of the couple's baby. No matter what Christian Ponder’s NFL career brings him, he should still feel like a winner with such a gorgeous woman at his side.
15 Kelly Hall
Matt Stafford married his long-time girlfriend Kelly Hall in 2015. The two met while attending the University of Georgia and have been together since. Kelly has some athletic abilities to go along with her good looks. She is apparently a decent golfer and enjoys playing basketball. She also appears to have a love for partying as is shown in several videos and photos. She recently went to Las Vegas to blow off some steam before getting married and, by all accounts, she and her friends had a wild time. Among her achievements are earning a nursing degree and paying for her own breast implants. Two completely different extremes.
14 Miranda Brooke
With yet another highlight reel catch, AJ Green, the lanky star wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals, married the talented and head-turning Miranda Brooke in 2015. AJ might have the fame and the glory right now, but Miranda is a rising star in the music industry. She has the voice, moves and the looks that could easily see her star eclipse AJ’s. Even AJ himself predicts this to happen. The couple apparently met on social media, where they are both active.
At least AJ got to go home to a hot wife to temper the frustration of losing a heart-breaker to the Steelers in the AFC Wildcard game.
13 Lauren Tannehill
Lauren Tannehill insists that she is not that interesting. Certainly a lot of people, including Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, disagree. The couple met in 2009 and quickly fell in love. Lauren was at the 2012 NFL Draft when Ryan was selected as the eighth overall pick. Twitter was filled with hundreds of tweet that commented on Lauren’s looks and not Ryan’s triumph. Lauren is pursuing a career in modeling and with her abundance of natural beauty, she should have no problem finding the spotlight. Best of all, she actually loves football and knows the game. Most guys could never dream of being so lucky.
12 Nicole Williams
Larry English is a defensive end who plays for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His career isn’t exactly blossoming but his love-life sure is. English is dating the smoking hot Nicole Williams. Williams is a lingerie model who has also appeared on television’s WAGS. She comes across as an attention seeking, controlling, paranoid and obsessive girlfriend who has trust issues but who cares? She is a fox and Larry seems to be able to deal with it. Larry has been criticized for his lack of concentration on the field and it is easy to see why. While they seem to be mostly happy together, there are no engagement plans yet.
11 Lilit Avagyan
Lilit Avagyan is a curvaceous former professional ballroom dancer who is married to Reggie Bush. They have two children together and, from their outward appearance, seem to be very happy together. Lilit currently works as a choreographer and dance teacher. She went to Europe at the age of 12 to study dancing and started her own ballet academy. She appeared on Dancing With the Stars and has competed in many dancing championships. She’s got talent, brains and all sorts of eye-catching curves. Reggie Bush has topped winning a Super Bowl by winning the heart of this amazing woman. Lilit Avagyan is one hot NFL WAG.
10 Katherine Webb
A veteran of beauty pageants and crowned Miss Alabama in 2012, Katherine Webb gained notoriety during the 2013 BCS National Championship game. She was in the audience watching her boyfriend A.J McCarron, who was Alabama’s quarterback. After television cameras focused in on her, Brent Musberger made some flattering on-air comments. This seemingly innocuous event led to a lot of interest in Webb as well as job offers. She has gone on to have a successful modeling career having appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. McCarron and Webb married in 2014. A.J McCarron might be a backup quarterback but he is a Pro Bowler when it comes to having a sexy NFL WAG.
9 Kerry Washington
An Emmy-nominated actress with many acting credits and awards to her name, Kerry Washington is a WAG extraordinaire. Kerry married NFL veteran cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha in 2013. Coincidentally that same year marked Nnamdi’s final year as an NFL player. But enough about the former player. Kerry Washington is not only blessed with incredible smarts and convictions, she is also blessed with the beauty that makes her one of the sexiest NFL WAGs.
8 Erin Heatherton
Astonishingly sexy Erin Heatherton moved to New York City at the age of 17 in pursuit of a modeling career. Things quickly came together for her as she graced the covers of several magazines. She worked her way up to becoming a Victoria Secret supermodel appearing in several television commercials and she's also had a couple minor television roles. She makes the WAGs list for her three year on and off romance with NFL tight end Jordan Cameron. Cameron has gone through a rough stretch on the playing field but he has done quite well in the area of dating supermodels. No wonder Cameron’s fantasy football production has tanked.
7 Kristin Cavallari
Kristen Cavallari came into the spotlight when she was cast in the television show Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County. She went on to pursue an acting career in 2006 and landed a few minor roles. She has since added many acting credits to her name and her career is flourishing. She also has a thing for underachieving quarterbacks. After the sexy siren briefly dated Matt Leinart, she moved on to dating Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. The two married in 2013.
6 Elizabeth Barry
Elizabeth Barry was a cheerleader for the Oakland Raiders and Alex Smith was the quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers when they first met. They got engaged and then married in 2009, immediately thrusting her into the position of being on of the NFL’s finest WAGs. They might have been on rival squads once, but they are a very tight-knit team now. Together they are involved with a number of charities and noble causes including the prevention of domestic violence. They are also the proud parents of two children. Aside from being an absolute knock-out, Elizabeth has been a rock of support for Alex in his personal life and football career. She knows how to stand by her man.
5 Carrie Prejean
Kyle Boller was a bust as an NFL quarterback but he sure did well for himself when it came to finding a sexy wife. Carrie Prejean was a beauty queen who has stirred up her fair share of controversy since hitting the spotlight. She was named Miss California 2009 and was the Miss USA runner-up the same year. She ruffled some feathers during the Miss USA pageant with her well spoken but controversial opinion on same sex marriage. She then took another blow when partially nude pictures of her were uncovered. She was consequentially stripped of her Miss California crown. Oh yeah, there was also the sex tape. Regardless, she is one sweet looking WAG.
4 Abby Manning
OK Eli. We Get it. You’re a winner.
Eli Manning has a trophy wife to add to the two Lombardi Trophies he’s won. He is known to come up with a clutch play or two, but what ever play he made to win Abby Manning might have been his best. They met in 2002, married in 2008 and have three kids together. She is one of the sexiest NFL WAGs out there. After studying fashion in New York, she went on to work for fashion designer Pamela Roland. She now spends a lot of her time raising their kids and looking great.
3 Heather Mitts
Voted ESPN’s hottest female athlete in 2004, Heather Mitts went on to appear in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2005. Yes, she is talented indeed. Mitts played professional soccer and was on three Olympic Gold Medal teams. She has worked in television as a soccer analyst and even had a stint as an NFL sideline reporter. In 2010, after dating on and off for a while, Mitts officially joined the Sexiest NFL WAGs Club by marrying fading NFL quarterback A.J Feeley. Heather spends as much time around soccer as she can. She runs soccer camps where she teaches kids to play the game that loves.
2 Olivia Munn
Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been known to make a few nice connections on the field, but he is also obviously capable of making connections off the field as well. Take, for example, his connection with the lovely and talented Olivia Munn. The two began dating in May 2014 and have been the topic of recent engagement rumors. It’s quite possible that Aaron Rodgers will have a wedding ring before he gets a second Super Bowl ring. Aaron spends a lot of time with Olivia and who can blame him? She is a natural beauty who turns heads wherever she goes.
1 Lacey Minchew
One of, if not the hottest NFL WAG is Lacey Minchew. She was a cheerleader at LSU and a former Miss Teen America when she met Matt Flynn in 2003. They have been a happy couple ever since. Luscious Lacey studied broadcast journalism while Matt played his college football. In 2008, Lacey began an acting career. She now has a long list of movie credits to her name. She also found time to win Miss Louisiana in 2009. After a long courtship, she married Matt in 2013 and by all accounts they are very happily married. Lacey continues to add to her acting credits while also being one of the sexiest NFL WAGs the world has seen.
