Unless you have one hell of a personality, you may need to be an NFL star to be envied among the masses. There’s one thing the following players have in common: They all have drop dead gorgeous counterparts. While you’re in between dinner, Sleepless in Seattle, or a gallon of ice cream, take a look at this day-dream list of the top 10 hottest wives of the NFL that you wish were yours, if only for today.
10. Abby Manning
To kick-start our list, this hot Nashville native belongs to none other than 2-time Super Bowl Champion Giants QB Eli Manning. The two were married in 2007, but Abby and Eli have been together since their Ole Miss days. Mrs. Manning studies fashion in New York City. They have one daughter
9. Elaina Watley
I’m sure our number 9 hottie on the list is an expert in the salsa, as she’s the long time girlfriend of Victor Cruz. The couple shared a big month in January 2012. Not only did Cruz come up big with two huge playoff wins, but the two became parents on January 12th. Cruz would earn his ring a month later.
8. Janelle Winslow
When tight end Kellen Winslow isn’t making catches for the Bucs, he’s hanging out with his wife Janelle. The couple have been married since June 15th, 2006. Their son, Maximus was born in February 2011.
7. Anna Burns
Even if Wes Welker doesn’t get re-signed by the New England Patriots, he’ll always have Anna. The two were hitched on June 23rd, 2012. Anna appeared in the news for all the wrong reasons following New England’s painful loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Mrs. Welker sounded off on Ray Lewis via Facebook, but would lately issue an apology. She’s more well-known as 2005 Miss Hooters International. She’s appeared in calendars, magazines, and several television commercials. If you can lead the NFL in most receptions, all of this could be yours!
6. Gisele Bundchen
We’re all familiar with Gisele right? Just in case, this angel is referred to some as the only true remaining supermodel. This Brazilian babe was one of the Victoria’s Secret Angels from 2000-2007. Since 2004, she has been the highest-paid model in the world. As of 2007, she ranks as the sixteenth richest woman in the entertainment history. She was once in a relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio, but a perfect woman deserves a perfect quarterback, Tom Brady. They’ve been married since 2009
5. Kristin Cavallari
Well, she was available for a minute, but Bears quarterback Jay Cutler came to his senses after breaking their engagement off before in April 2011. They’ve confirmed it’s for real this time, and have recently become re-engaged. Kristin starred in Laguna Beach and The Hills.
4. Kendra Wilkinson
Most NFL stars don’t need a Playboy subscription for the basic fact that they’re usually married to a playboy model. Such is the case for former wide receiver Hank Baskett. The two were married in June 2009. They both starred in her own hit television show Kendra.
3. Lauren Tannehill
While the Miami Dolphins are hoping they strike it rich with rookie sensation Ryan Tannehill, it appears that he already won the jackpot. Model Lauren Tannehill and Ryan met at Texas A&M and were married in Mexico in January 2012.
2. Candice Crawford
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo sure knows how to pick them. After parting ways with Jessica Simpson, Romo married Crawford in May 2011. Candice competed in the Miss Texas Teen USA 2003 and 2005 pageants, placing third runner-up in both competitions. In the Miss Missouri USA 2007 pageant, she placed as first runner-up.
1. Jessie James
It was extremely difficult to decide on the Top Hottest Wife of the NFL, but after careful consideration and multiple drool clean-up sessions, the crown goes to Jessica Rose “Jessie” James. This bombshell country pop singer is the fiance of Denver wide receiver Eric Decker. They were engaged in April 2012.
