We’re currently in the homestretch of summer which could only mean one thing: NFL season is just around the corner. And while some of you will be donning your team’s colors and cheering them to a Week 1 victory, there are also plenty of you who look at NFL season as the start of countless Sundays where your boo will be glued to the tube. No, we’re certainly not saying women aren’t capable of being NFL fans in their own right, but lord knows looking at hot bodies hitting the gridiron will benefit sports fans and not-so-sports-fans alike. So with that in mind, and with no further adieu, here are our picks for some of the hottest NFL players heading into the 2017-18 season.

Von Miller

There is something about that Von Miller. He’s goofy, he’s got quite the taste in clothing, and he is absolutely adorable. A celebrated linebacker for the Denver Broncos, Miller has a body that makes us drool but a personality that keeps us engaged. There is no doubt that we’ll be keeping an eye on him this season for more than just his playing abilities.

Russell Wilson

So we’re not quite sure what we love more: Russell Wilson’s impeccable good looks or how he seems to be the sweetest, most considerate and most perfect man on the face of the planet. The Seahawks quarterback is married to Ciara (who we have the biggest girl crush on to begin with) and their Instagram affection makes us swoon on pretty much a daily basis for this cutie. Yeah, we know he’s off the market, but we can still admire from afar.

Cam Newton

Say what you will about Cam Newton, but it’s difficult to deny that he is one good-looking man. Sure, he’s definitely not lacking when it comes to ego, but when you’re as accomplished a young quarterback as he is, it might be a challenge to keep your hubris in check. As any good NFL player, the body on Newton is the stuff of lady dreams, but it’s also his million watt smile that makes us a bit weak in the knees.

Cheesin dudes

Eric Decker

Another married man to make our list, but this one is without question worthy of a spot. Eric Decker might not be the NFL’s brightest star, but there’s no denying that he’s definitely one of the most attractive. Tall, dark and handsome, Decker is only made even more lovable when seeing just how over-the-moon in love he is with his wife and children. A family man who is also a DILF … yup, a winning combination.

Reggie Bush

Reggie Bush has been on the NFL scene for more than a decade and we’re grateful for every one of those years because, for every year Bush has been around, we’ve been just that much happier tuning into football Sundays. Yes, he got a side-eye from us during the Kardashian romance years, but that still didn’t derail our interest in this sexy, young man. And just like a fine wine, he’s only gotten better with age.

Victor Cruz

OK, OK, we know what you’re thinking. Victor Cruz, despite his best attempts, is far from the man of our dreams. His cheating scandal a few years back (as a reminder, girlfriend Elaina Watley sent a group text to all his mistresses — and it was amazing) tarnished his rep, but he’s the sort of hot we still have to give a nod to. We could say we’re ashamed of ourselves for still lusting over him … but we’re not.

Little blessing

Mychal Kendricks

If you aren’t familiar with Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks might we suggest getting acquainted with this cutie? Not only do we think he’s killing it in the looks department, but if there is one thing that we can’t help but love is a hot man with an adorable puppy. Take us now!

Julian Edelman

A caption really seems useless when we can just point to this. You’re welcome.

Why not make history? "MIGHT AS WELL" #Everything1K #ImIt #Blessed

A post shared by O.J. Howard (@dajuice_80) on

OJ Howard

Another newbie hitting the scene this season, OJ Howard will be making the ladies smile in Tampa Bay as a tight end for the Buccaneers. Sure this young buck is barely out of college (he’s 22), but that doesn’t mean we can’t at least throw a little appreciation his way.

Philly!! Let's get it

A post shared by Derek Barnett (@dbarnett25) on

Derek Barnett

Derek Barnett is one big boy, but we’re looking at him as just way more to love on. With such a cute smile and kind eyes, he is definitely a hottie on the come up who we’ll be paying attention to in the weeks to come.
