The 10 hottest NFL Wives and Girlfriends (WAGs)
There’s nothing quite like being a star pro athlete. Apart from having monster salaries, they also usually get the hot chicks. On this list, Nitrogen Sports Blog presents some of the sexiest NFL WAGs in recent memory.
We haven’t seen Hakeem Nicks play in the NFL since the 2015 season, but if you’re feeling sorry for him, well, don’t be. The former New York Giants wide receiver still goes home to Ariel Meredith, who is a total smokeshow.
Meredith is doing just fine helming a modeling career that has landed her gigs on Sports Illustrated on five separate occasions. Nicks is currently on a comeback trail, hoping that he’d be able play pro football again. Even if Nicks failed in his bid for an NFL return, at least he has Meredith to play any game with.
Kyle Van Noy has won two Super Bowl titles with the New England Patriots, but if you ask us, the best win he’s scored in his life was making former Ms. Utah, Marissa Powell say yes. The two got married in 2014, which means that the linebacker has been an incredibly lucky dude for five years now — and counting.
Christian Ponder has a pretty forgettable stint in the NFL, as he’s thrown just two more touchdowns than interceptions (38-36) in his short four-year pro career.
That’s not the kind of numbers any quarterback would be proud to tell most people, but his mediocre play on the field was not enough to scare away beautiful host of Sunday NFL Countdown Samantha Ponder. The two wedded in 2012 and probably talks about football more than most other couples do.
She is one of social media’s biggest influencers, an Instagram model who commands the attention of hundreds of thousands with each new photo. Phillips is also the girlfriend of DeSean Jackson, wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles. Jackson often makes appearances on Kayla’s account, making them one of the most instafamous couples in sports.
Houston Texans backup QB AJ McCarron was a huge star in Alabama during his playing days for the Crimson Tide, whom he lead to three BCS national titles. Those are not the only trophies he got from ‘Bama, though. In fact, his trophy wife, Katharine Webb, was a former Miss Alabama. McCarron spent four seasons playing in the shadow of Andy Dalton, but having a bombshell wife sure made it easy for him to watch Dalton fail every time the Bengals need a win.
Kostek is the classic American blonde bombshell. She has appeared in Sports Illustrated issues and seems to have made a profound impact on Rob Gronkowski. The three-time Super Bowl winner has recently announced his retirement from football at a prime age of 29.
The NFL is a much better league when Gronk is part of it, but the true Bro King of football seems to be fine with being away from the sport as a player for good. After all, he’s got Kostek to share his adrenaline with every Sunday night.
Danny Amendola and Olivia Culpo used to be a thing, until they parted ways last year, allegedly due to the now Detroit Lions wideout’s unfaithfulness. Cheating on a former Ms. Universe? That’s got to be the biggest fumble Amendola has done — ever.
Lilit Avagyan Bush
Reggie Bush was among the notable victims of the Kardashian Curse, though, he’s already rebounded from the malaise often blamed to having any association with the celebrity family. Now, the former USC star is living a happy life with wife Lilit Avagyan Bush, who’s some sort of a celebrity herself as one of Instagram’s top influencers.
R&B star Ciara is married to Seattle Seahawks signal-caller Russel Wilson. The two married in 2016 after two years of dating, and despite Ciara having a kid with previous partner Future. Let’s just say that Ciara got Wilson good.
Tom Brady’s status as the greatest football of all-time is still debatable, but his wife’s label as the GOAT NFL WAG should never be questioned. Bündchen is quite possibly the one WAG in the history of football whose celebrity (and money-generating power) is bigger than her partner’s. Bündchen is every bit the definition of a supermodel. Now you know why Brady doesn’t seem to care about his haters.
Football is fun not just because of the action on the field, but also because of the personalities that make it colorful and more intriguing. Just take for example the best NFL WAGs we’ve just listed above.
