The Sexiest WAGS From the NFL, 2014 Edition


Sports Quick, what do Katherine Webb, Ariel Meredith, Lauren Tannehill, and Carmella DeCesare have in common? Well, besides being beautiful, empowered women, they are four of the WAGS from the NFL.  For the unhip, WAGS is an acronym that stands for wives and girlfriends.  It was supposedly created by European soccer fans to describe the significant others of footballers. As the term became more popular, the wives and girlfriends of U.S. professional athletes were increasingly called WAGS too. Two of the famous WAGS in pop culture are Victoria Beckham and Colombia pop star Shakira. Sometimes WAGS becomes a pejorative term against women associated with professional athletes. But here at F&TS, we celebrate women. We don’t ‘hate.’

NFL WAGS Are Winners

Ariel Meredith is the fiancee of ex-New York Giants and current Colts WR Hakeem Nicks. Meredith grew up in Shreveport, Louisiana, and by her teenage years, was starting a career as a model. She appeared in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue five times, as well as in the pages of big-name fashion magazines. She’s walked in runway shows for Vera Wang, Dolce & Gabana, La Perla, and others. Let’s hope we get to see Meredith in more campaigns in the coming years. Hakeem Nicks is one lucky man.

Lauren Tannehill is Ryan Tannehill’s better half. Ryan is the starting quarterback for the Miami Dolphins. Mrs. Tannenhill has amassed a large social media following as she supports Ryan’s career. Her traffic-stopping looks garnered her a job as a model while she was still in school at Texas A&M. Lauren has been the face of a jewelry company, among other things. She has worked off and on since then.


The Magnificent Webb and Carmella

Who hasn’t heard of Katherine Webb? But if you’ve been living under a rock, Webb is a model and former beauty queen. She was Miss Alabama 2012. She is currently dating Alabama QB, AJ McCarron. He is currently on the roster of the Cincinnati Bengals.


Believe it or not, Carmella DeCesare is Philadelphia Eagles’ QB Jeff Garcia’s wife. DeCesare is a former Playboy Playmate and competed in the WWE’s Divas Search. Athletes have all the luck. Sports franchises pay them millions of dollars to play competitive games. All that success brings attention and the opportunity to meet amazing women. It’s one of the reasons we follow the exploits of WAGS so closely. These women and their partners become legitimate power couples.
