The 10 hottest footballers at NFL 2018: Get ready to start drooling

We're all set for the upcoming NFL on September 6, but there's so much more to watch out for on the field. Seriously, drop-dead gorgeous men make up the NFL and here's the list for the top 10 athletes to look forward to, whether football is your thing or not.

Tom Brady



 

Quarterback for the New England Patriots

Status: Married 

He's always winning. Not just referring to his five Super Bowl rings to his name but also when it comes to his undeniable good looks. Always looking sharp with and without his uniform, the iconic athlete stole hearts from corners of the world by being a doting father of two and a loving husband to supermodel Gisele Bundchen. The 6'4'' soccer player has also scored ample modeling contracts and was the face of Stetson cologne in 2007. According to Forbes, he earned about $7 million from endorsements alone in 2014, thanks to his prolific status, as an athlete as well as a bankable model. 

Jimmy Garoppolo



 

Quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers

Status: In a Relationship

The latest news has it that Garoppolo is the next Tom Brady. The 26-year-old handsome hunk has a long career ahead of him, and that alone is enough to make him all the more desirable. Brady's successor in stature, Garoppolo was and is the fancy of many but since February, he's linked to a Boston model, Alexandra King. The 6'2'' toned and chiseled young man has been noted for his George Clooney-"ish" smile and we are still melting.

Alex Smith



 

Quarterback  for the Kansas City Chiefs

Status: Married

A concussion that caused him to lose his starting position on the San Francisco 49ers back in 2012 was no excuse for a setback. After being traded to the Chiefs in 2013, Smith went on to lead Kansas City in underdog winning-streaks in both 2013 and 2015. Coming into the limelight, fans were quick to note him for his good looks and in 2016, the 34-year-old was affirmed to be the best looking NFL player. Years have elapsed and it still hasn't changed, his ash brown hair and blue eyes still captivate the audience, even when he is in his uniform, just acing it. If he wasn't on the field, we can totally picture him on the silver screen. 

Eric Decker



 

Wide receiver for New England Patriots

Status: Married

A month ago, Decker signed with the Patriots after years of serving New York Jets and Tennessee Titans, but fans couldn't be less happy to have him back on the game.  Underneath all that football gear, his insane body has caught the attention of many magazines and has been featured shirtless on several spreads. His wife, Jessie James Decker, is also proud to share his toned physique in social media. When Decker is all covered up and has his game face on, his smile can still move mountains. Also, the star of E!'s reality series  'Eric & Jessie,' the couple has shown us a close-up of the beautiful Decker family and seeing him love his two children, makes us all the more thirsty.

Mychal Kendricks



 

Linebacker, Cleveland Browns

Status: Single

A few years ago Rihanna admitted Kendricks to be one of her #ManCrushMondays and with Riri's seal of approval, the UC Berkeley alum, does make our list. However, the 27-year-old hot bod is mega-controversial now because just last month, Kendricks was charged with insider trading, allegedly making $1.2 million from investments in 2014. Stay away from trouble and hopefully, we won't have to not be graced by his good looks on the field, especially given that he looks ah-mazing when smeared with black. But, as it turns out The Browns may have cut ties with him as NFL Personal Conduct Policy lists “crimes of dishonesty such as blackmail, extortion, fraud, money laundering, or racketeering” as prohibited conduct that could result in a suspension. Sad fate. 

Cam Newton



 

Quarterback for the Carolina Panthers 

Status: Committed

One of the main reasons why the NFL is stylish is because Cam Newton makes it so. Don't believe it? Head to his Instagram to see the trendiest menswear of the season featuring hats, shorts, and shades. Added to all that, is that baby-faced grin, wide smile and rare blend of good body, height, and speed, makes him quite irresistible in a way. In 2014, Cam was dubbed to be the "most athletic quarterback" and why would that be a surprise given that as a young quarterback, he smashed Peyton Manning’s passing record by 120 yards!

Danny Amendola



 

Wide receiver for Miami Dolphins

Status: Relationship

Following Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen, another genetically beautiful couple of New England are Danny Amendola and Olivia Culpo, the former Miss Universe, Instagram influencer and a cast member of E!'s newest series 'Model Squad,' but now they are the "it" couple of Miami Dolphins. Besides making a lot of money playing football, last year Amendola was spotted walking the ramp at a New York fashion event. His girlfriend was super impressed with his modeling skills and so were everyone else. Sigh! the package comes complete!

Jason Witten



 

Tight end for Dallas Cowboys

Status: Married

He may have retired from the Dallas Cowboys, but he did enough justice to the blue and white uniform. Once addressed as "that hot guy from NFL," Witten has now transitioned into the broadcast booth to become ESPN's lead analyst on Monday Night Football. After playing 15 seasons and carrying off chiseled looks, seeing him donned in tux only adds to be a cherry on top. Who said good looks don't last?

DeSean Jackson



 

Wide receiver for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Status: In a relationship

Jackson was first drafted to the Philadelphia Eagles back in 2008, played three seasons with the Washington Redskins, and in 2017, signed a $33.5 million contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The handsome hunk has often said that his son, DeSean Jackson Jr., is his number one motivation on the field. He's got his priorities right and nothing is sexier than an athletic dad who's all about his kid.

Brock Osweiler



 

Quarterback for the Miami Dolphins 

Status: Married

Osweiler's competition with David Fales for the Dolphins backup quarterback position may be fierce but he definitely finds a spot on our list. The 27-year-old has one of those symmetrical faces that you see to never forget. He has, often times than not, been likened to look like our favorite vampires of all time, Edward Cullen, and why not? His 6'7'' stature and perfect locks look something right out of a fairytale anyway.
