Meet the Lovely Wives of the Most Famous NFL Players

You know the stats of your favorite NFL players: their teams, how many times they’ve been traded, and how many wins they have under their belts, and so on. NFL players are known for how they play on the field, but not as much is said about their time off the field. Do you know who your favorite players are married to? Some of them are married to equally successful women, such as supermodel Gisele Bündchen or singer Ciara.

When you think of a football player’s prized possession, you probably think of the Super Bowl ring. But some of these players’ prized “possessions” are their lovely ladies who stand by, cheer them on, and support them every step of the way. (And no, I’m not saying that women are possessions. It’s a figure of speech).

Also, since tying the knot isn’t for everyone (including superstar football players who could pretty much get any girl they want), you’ll also see some longtime girlfriends of football players, too.

Tony Romo and Candice Crawford

Tony Romo made a name for himself as the iconic Dallas Cowboys quarterback and is the current NFL broadcaster. He’s one of the biggest names in football. And with a status like his, it can’t be hard to find a great woman. Romo married the former beauty pageant queen, Candice Crawford. Crawford was also named “Miss Missouri” in 2008. Apart from her pageant days, Crawford used to be a television reporter. Currently, she works as a sports reporter for a local Dallas TV station. The couple got married in 2011, and they have three children together.

Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari

The former quarterback for the Denver Broncos, Chicago Bears and Miami Dolphins, Jay Cutler was famous for being a gunslinger on the field. Cutler met and married (in 2013) the renowned television personality, fashion designer, and actress, Kristin Cavallari. Kristin felt her initial hint of fame in 2004 when she was cast in the reality show ‘Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County.’ A year later, she moved to LA to pursue an acting career. She’s since starred in several series, including Very Cavallari and The Hills.

Kyle Boller and Carrie Prejean

Oakland Raiders quarterback Kyle Boller fell for his current wife, Carrie Prejean, the American model, author, former Miss California USA, and runner-up for Miss America in 2009. Prejean and Boller got married in 2010 and had their first child in 2011.

Prejean received national attention in 2009 for some comments that earned her some backlash. She said a wedding was meant to be between a man and a woman…only. It stirred some real controversy, which led to eventually getting her Miss California crown rescinded for “breaches of contract.”

Matt Flynn and Lacey Minchew

Green Bay’s quarterback, Matt Flynn, is married to Lacey Minchew, who was Miss Louisana back in 2009. She created a media buzz for being linked to the backup quarterback. Minchew and Flynn both happened to be students at Louisiana State University when they first met. He was a football player, and she was a Golden Girl dancer. Minchew was also a former Miss Teen America in 2002. Lacey, from Atlanta, started dating Matt in 2003, but after graduation and then becoming Miss Louisiana, she started an acting career.

Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen

Tom Brady may be one of the wealthiest quarterbacks in NFL history, but he isn’t the only breadwinner in his household. His wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, brings in her share of the dough. Gisele is one of the most sought-after models in the world. In 2014, Bundchen Forbes named her the 89th most powerful woman in the world. Her estimated earnings from the year 2016 alone were roughly $30.5 million, thanks to her modeling and endorsement deals. Brady, meanwhile, earned “only” $15 million that year as the best signal-caller in the NFL.

AJ McCarron and Katherine Webb

AJ McCarron is a 3-time BCS National Champion quarterback and a huge sensation in Alabama, leading the Crimson Tide college football’s most dominant dynasties ever. His then-girlfriend (now wife), Katherine Webb, stole some of his thunder when McCarron was on the field. During 2013’s National Championship, announcer Brent Musburger went all goo-goo over Webb in the middle of the broadcast. It only helped Webb, the 2012 Miss Alabama winner, launch a modeling career. After she went viral, Webb was in a Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue. McCarron then became a fifth-round NFL Draft pick and is now one of the league’s most reliable backup quarterbacks.

Aaron Rodgers and Danica Patrick

It’s doesn’t often happen that dominant sports figures get married, but that’s what happened with Aaron Rodgers and Danica Patrick. Patrick is an uber-famous NASCAR and IndyCar Driver, who became a viral sensation when she got the title of the first woman to lead the IndyCar 500.

Rodgers was the Super Bowl champion quarterback who basically decimated the NFL for more than a decade. He knows how to pick apart opposing defenses with precision. By the end of his NFL career, Rodgers might become the most talented quarterback in NFL history.

Eric Johnson and Jessica Simpson

Simpson and Johnson have been in a relationship for nearly a decade. The two began dating in 2010 and have been making their own little family ever since. The pair married in 2014, and are already parents to Maxwell and Ace. They welcomed their youngest in 2019.

Eric Maxwell Johnson used to play as a football tight end in the NFL. He was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the 7th round of the 2001 NFL Draft. He also played college football at Yale. I think we all know who Jessica Simpson is, although I could have sworn she was still with Nick Lachey.

Russell Wilson and Ciara

Similar to Aaron Rodgers and Danica Patrick, it’s hard to tell who is more famous between these two superstars: Seattle Seahawks quarterback, Russell Wilson, or his wife, the singer, songwriter, actress Ciara? In the early 2000s, Ciara reached the top of the charts with hits like “1,2 Step” and “Goodies,” making her mark as an R&B star. The couple married in 2016 and has one child.

Wilson’s NFL career has been equally impressive, though. Wilson was selected in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft, and the gunslinger led his team to back-to-back NFC Championship games and got the first Super Bowl title in franchise history.

Osi Umenyiora and Leila Lopes

The former New York Giants defensive end was a force to be reckoned with on the defensive line for years. Umenyiora made his place in the Giants’ improbable Super Bowl runs (in 2007 and 2011) that both ended in wins over the New England Patriots.

In 2015, he tied the knot with former Miss Universe, Leila Lopes. Lopes is one of the most famous supermodels in the world. Coming from the African nation Angola, she won both Miss Angola UK and Miss Angola in 2010. She followed up her titles with the praised Miss Universe title. In 2018, she announced that she was pregnant, and the couple now has a child.

Eric Decker and Jessie James Decker

NFL veteran Eric Decker had quite a career under his belt, having played for the Denver Broncos, New York Jets, Tennessee Titans, and New England Patriots. The former 3rd-round pick was one of the more underrated wide receivers of his time, considering his 54 touchdowns and nearly 6,000 receiving yards in his whole career.

Eric isn’t the only superstar in his home, though. Decker’s wife, Jessie James, is a country-pop singer-songwriter, a reality TV star, and a fashion designer. After releasing her debut album, she starred with her husband in the E! reality series called “Eric & Jessie: Game On.”

Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Matthews

Perhaps the next best quarterback (after Tom Brady), the young sensation, Patrick Mahomes, has set the NFL on fire since becoming a full-time starter in 2018. He was the Kansas City Chiefs’ first-round pick in 2017 and appeared to be on a fast track to rewrite the NFL’s history books.

He’s been dating Brittany Matthews for years not. And Matthews is also a great athlete herself. She earned a soccer scholarship from the University of Texas at Tyler and played professionally for a team in Iceland called UMF Afturelding/Fram. The happy couple has been together for more than 7 years now and seems as happy as ever.

Eli Manning and Abby McGrew

The two-time Super Bowl champion quarterback may not be a record-breaking passer like his brother Peyton was, but he’ll still get to retire with two Super Bowl rings. That counts for something, doesn’t it? The New York Giants signal-caller has a solid career, becoming a fixture in the NFL for many years.

Manning met Abby McGrew when the two were studying at the University of Mississippi in 2002. Manning was then a junior and the college’s star quarterback. McGrew was just a freshman. They became an item in the fall of that year, just as Manning began the 2002 season at Ole Miss. They got engaged in 2007 and a year later, tied the knot in Los Cabos, Mexico.

Drew Brees and Brittany Dudchenko

Super Bowl champion quarterback Drew Brees loved in the city of New Orleans since he’s been dominating his quarterback position for a decade. Brees holds more than one NFL record; for career pass completions, career completion percentage, and career passing yards. One of his accomplishments is his marriage to Brittany Dudchenko. The two got married in 2003 and have four children together.

Brees and Dudchenko founded the Brees Dream Foundation during the same year they got married, and they’ve raised millions for children in need of cancer and post-cancer treatments.

Alex Smith and Elizabeth Barry

He was once the first overall pick of the NFL Draft for the San Francisco 49ers. Alex Smith made more than an impact as QB for three different teams. After spending the start of his career in San Francisco, he was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs and later to the Washington Redskins. In 2009, he married a woman with her own NFL connections.

Elizabeth Barry, who was once a cheerleader for the Oakland Raiders, is Alex’s wife. A former NFL cheerleader and an NFL quarterback? The two make a perfect pair. The happy couple has kids together.

Julius Peppers and Claudia Sampedro

Pepper is undoubtedly one of the greatest players in Carolina Panthers franchise history, and one of the most dominant pass-rushers ever. But one of his greatest accomplishments to date came off the field when he married his wife, Claudia Sampedro.

Peppers married the ‘WAGS Miami’ star in 2014 when he was a member of the Green Bay Packers. The couple moved back to Carolina when Peppers reunited with the team that drafted him, and with them, he finished his career. Peppers and Sampedro have been married for about 5 years now, and they have one child together.

Tony Gonzalez and October Gonzalez

The football legend Tony Gonzalez could have had the title of the best tight end in NFL history if it wasn’t for New England Patriots’ Rob Gronkowski taking the league by storm. But, Gonzalez is definitely a top-two tight end.

In 2007, he married his wife, October Gonzalez, who has made her share of appearances on TV every now and then. While she has made herself known on camera, it’s her husband who remains on the screens across the nation every week as an NFL analyst. October has done well for herself as her net worth is estimated at $20 million.

Carson Wentz and Madison Oberg

Carson Wentz, the Super Bowl champion quarterback, has become one of the most prolific passers in the NFL. The Philadelphia Eagles star met Madison Oberg and pretty much just fell in love. After his championship win, Wentz continued his winning streak and did what he knew he had to do.

Less than a week after the win, he popped the question and proposed to Oberg. Around a year later, the two got married. For a player of such a young age, it looks like Wentz has a bright future ahead of him, both on the field and off.

Cooper Kupp and Anna Croskrey

Despite having been a third-round selection in the 2017 NFL Draft, LA Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp became one of the NFL’s most superb slot receivers. The star from Eastern Washington University has become the top receiving threat of his team, getting the Rams to reach the Super Bowl LIII.

Kupp married his current wife, Anna Marie, in 2015. But their love story goes way further back. The two met in high school. In 2018, they welcomed their first baby into the world. Kupp is a third-generation NFL player, so it’s only a matter of time before his son starts suiting up.

A.J. Green and Miranda Brooke

He’s actually one of the league’s most underappreciated players. Cincinnati Bengals’ wide receiver, A.J. Green, unlike many other star receivers, stays out of the spotlight and simply lets his hands do the work. In his college days, a woman named Miranda Brooke caught the young man’s attention.

The two went to the University of Georgia, and then Green started playing in the NFL while Brooke wrote songs in hopes of becoming a singer. But her career never quite took off. Their family life did, though, as the couple has two boys together.

Baker Mayfield and Emily Wilkinson

Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield took the NFL by storm with his impressive debut in 2018. Mayfield started going out with Emily Wilkinson around the same period that his career with the Cleveland Browns began. They were introduced through a mutual friend, but Mayfield followed the aspiring Instagram model for a while.

Fast forward a year, and the couple is getting married. Mayfield is now one of the biggest names in football, so it wouldn’t be a shock if we see these two faces around for a long time.

Mitchell Trubisky and Hillary Gallagher

Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky started seeing Hillary Gallagher during the offseason, and the press took notice. Trubisky played college football at the University of Carolina, whereas Gallagher spent her college days studying marketing at Florida State University.

Their relationship began quietly and under the radar, but once it became Instagram-official in 2019, the two are now one of Chicago’s most loved couples. With Trubisky in a promising NFL career and Gallagher by his side, fans of the Bears and hers have a lot to be excited about.

Jared Goff and Christen Harper

After being selected as the first overall selection in the 2016 NFL Draft, Jared Goff established himself rather quickly as a more than capable passer on one of the most dominant passing offenses in the LA Rams. After a Super Bowl run ended early at the hands of the Patriots in 2019, Goff has found some success off the field.

The quarterback is dating Christen Harper, a model who’s also done some acting work. The Los Angeles-based couple is easily one of the best-looking couples in football. Some might even say in all of sports!

Saquon Barkley and Anna Congdon

Saquon Barkley, the New York Giants’ running back, was NYC’s pride and joy before even putting on his jersey. When he played for Penn State, Barkley would blow by helpless opponents constantly for weekly highlight reels. He is still dating a fellow Penn State student.

Anna Congdon met Barkley while attending Penn State, and the two began to date. Things got serious between the two quickly while they were students, and it hasn’t changed. In 2018, the couple welcomed their first child to the world.

Zach Ertz and Julie Ertz

These two might just be the greatest power couple in sports. Zach Ertz is a Super Bowl champion, and Julie, his wife, is a World Cup champion. Ertz helped the Philadelphia Eagles turn into a dominant team in the league as one of the best premier tight ends, while his wife is a top-notch talent on the pitch.

First, she was named the National Women’s Soccer League Rookie of the Year and then went on to be a World Cup champion, so she can likely run laps around her athletic husband.

When he played for the Philadelphia Eagles, Nick Foles was a career journeyman, and then, in 2018, he led them to a Super Bowl, earning Super Bowl MVP honors along the way. His wife, Tori, has been with him way before he became a superstar.

The two got married in 2014 when Nick was still in his first stretch with the Eagles. He played on three more teams after that, becoming a household name. The couple sadly suffered a miscarriage in 2019, and bravely chose to share their experience on social media.

Christian Ponder and Samantha Ponder

These two are one of the most recognizable power duos in sports. The Ponders became icons in the football world. Christian was a star quarterback at Florida State University and was selected with the 12th overall pick of the 2011 NFL Draft. Samantha, meanwhile, became one of the most high-profile college football reporters in the country.

Samantha spent time at Fox Sports and ESPN, making herself a fixture in NCAA football coverage. She’s now the host of ESPN NFL Countdown. Though Christian is no longer an NFL quarterback, she can be seen on TV every NFL Sunday.

The former first overall pick, Cam Newton, is probably best known for leading the Carolina Panthers to a 15-1 record back in 2015 before losing the Super Bowl to the Denver Broncos. He was the only player awarded with the Heisman Trophy who won a national championship and was the first overall pick in an NFL draft in one year.

Newton is still with his longtime girlfriend, Kia Proctor. The couple has three children together, and they are expecting a 4th in late 2019 or early 2020. Newton continues to impress in the NFL.

Antonio Gates has been a dominant threat in the red zone for decades. He’s been the Chargers’ all-time leader in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. Not bad for a Kent State University student who went undrafted in 2003.

Sasha, meanwhile, has become a TV star in her own right, and if you watch ‘WAGS,’ you probably recognize her. Antonio’s wife has starred on the series ‘WAGS,’ which follows the lives of athletes’ wives and girlfriends. With Antonio playing football in Los Angeles before his retirement, WAGS LA was the perfect gig for Sasha.

The first time Robert Woods hit on his now-wife, Alexandra, she blew him off. But after a mutual friend encouraged her to get to know him, she finally gave the former Buffalo Bills wide receiver a chance. The two clearly hit it off, and they began taking flights regularly to see each other.

Woods signed a new contract with the Los Angeles Rams, which meant he could live closer to Alexandra. And then the star receiver proposed to her on vacation in Turks & Caicos. He continues to tear it up for the Rams.

Offensive tackle Donald Penn made a name for himself in the NFL. He played on four different NFL teams and earned three Pro Bowl selections. That’s an unbelievable accomplishment for a player who wasn’t even selected in the NFL Draft!

As if his career successes weren’t enough, the man also married the star of the TV series WAGS LA, Dominique Penn, in 2012. They have three children together. 13 years after every team in the NFL passed on the opportunity to draft him, Penn is still protecting quarterbacks.

Brian Quick, a second-round pick in 2012, was the highest NFL Draft pick to come out of Appalachian State University. He appeared to be on the fast track to stardom early in his career, but he never quite blossomed into what the teams hoped to see.

Despite Quick’s failure to launch, he made a big catch in 2015. The football player married Michelle Beltran, the star in her own right. Beltran is another woman on WAGS, which follows the wives and girlfriends of all these famous athletes.

The former Georgia Tech linebacker turned a successful college career into a substantial NFL payday. The former third-round pick didn’t see a lot of success early in his professional career, but he managed to sign a five-year, $25 million contract with the Miami Dolphins.

Wheeler’s contract didn’t work out, though. After two years, he was released. He’s failed to find a long-term home in the NFL ever since. At least Wheeler married Ashley Nicole Roberts, an army vet, and star on the show WAGS. His NFL career didn’t succeed, but he still got to score with Roberts.

Kyle Van Noy and Marissa Powell

The two-time Super Bowl champion linebacker, Kyle Van Noy, has made an impact on the New England Patriots since he was traded to by the Detroit Lions. The second-round pick was an afterthought when he was traded, but he evolved into one of football’s most talented linebackers.

Van Noy’s wife, Marissa Powell, is a star in her own right. She was on a popular TV show, but she wasn’t on the show WAGS like many of the other wives and girlfriends. She’s known for being an actress on the show “Ballers.” Powell was also a beauty pageant queen as she was titled Miss Utah in 2013.

The greatest tight end to play the sport of football, Rob Gronkowski is a difference-maker in his NFL career. The three-time Super Bowl champion is a key target of Tom Brady, playing a big role in the Patriots’ dynasty run.

Much of Gronk’s success is thanks to Camille Kostek, who has been by his side. She gained national recognition after her appearances in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues. The 2019 solo cover with the magazine gained her international fame. She used to be an NFL cheerleader and sports show host.

He’s no longer in the NFL, but his status on the field in the past and his ties to Hollywood sure land him a spot on this list.
