NFL Players and Their More Famous Partners

NFL Players and Their More Famous Partners

The 2023 NFL season will live long in the memory. Injuries to star quarterbacks such as Joe Burrow and Aaron Rodgers – the latter of those coming just six minutes into his debut – curtailed the hopes of Lombardi front runners the Bengals and the Jets. Meanwhile, former heavyweights, such as the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots, experienced some of their most embarrassing campaigns. The latter finished with a paltry 4-13 record, the second worst in the entire league.

In the end, it was the Kansas City Chiefs who once again ended the campaign victorious. They lifted the Lombardi for the second straight year with a nerve-shredding overtime victory against the San Francisco 49ers, despite being narrow underdogs heading into their final three post-season games.

The Chiefs now have the opportunity to become the first in history to complete the elusive three-peat, and popular sportsbook DraftKings certainly fancies their chances. DraftKings are known for their industry-leading promo codes, which offer exceptional value for new users, one of the reasons behind their successful operation in close to 20 states. They have made the Chiefs the favorites for the championship once again next year.

And while the story of the 2023 season was Chiefs-related, it wasn’t one many sports pundits would have predicted at the start of the campaign. And rather than the spotlight being on star quarterback Patrick Mahomes or the Arrowhead side’s poor run of form, the story was instead about legendary tight end Travis Kelce. He is now dating the most famous woman on the planet, Taylor Swift.

That got us thinking, which NFL stars have partners more famous than themselves? Let’s take a look.

Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce

It would be hard to have missed the fact that Taylor Swift is considered an icon – one of the most prominent figures of our era. She has set numerous records in the music industry and boasts a highly devoted fan following. While Travis Kelce is recognized as one of the greatest NFL tight ends in history, having won the Super Bowl twice, his achievements seem overshadowed by his cherished significant other.

Despite this, the pair appears to be in a good place. They have been seen together on numerous occasions, in person and on social platforms. Swift has also attended nearly all of her partner’s games this season. Fortunately for supporters, Kelce doesn’t seem to have an issue with being known as “Taylor’s Boyfriend.” He even seems to enjoy the title and has been captured grinning at fans who use that term when they see the couple out in public.

Throughout the playoffs, Swift was front and center on many NFL telecasts, something that deeply angered some people in Instagram comments sections. However, the organization itself certainly wasn’t sad to see the megastar featured front and center, with her appearances, and those of her legion of followers, resulting in a $330 million windfall for the most popular football league on the planet.

Simone Biles and Jonathan Owens

Simone Biles, a renowned Olympic gymnast, boasts numerous gold medals, solidifying her status as one of the most accomplished gymnasts in history. In contrast, Jonathan Owens plays as a safety for the Green Bay Packers and has been romantically involved with the star athlete since 2020.

Despite her diminutive stature at 26 years old, Biles commands a substantial social media following within the realm of sports. Owens, content with his supporting role akin to being the Robin to her Batman, openly showcases his admiration for his recent spouse – the couple tied the knot earlier this year – by highlighting her achievements at every opportunity.

Ciara and Russell Wilson

Russell Wilson, known for leading the Seattle Seahawks to Super Bowl Glory back in 2014 alongside the Legion of Boom, isn’t the sole star in his family. His spouse, Ciara, a Grammy-winning artist, has sold over 23 million records globally.

The pair, who have been together since 2015, wedded in Liverpool in 2016 and have a thriving relationship. However, Wilson’s football career has somewhat fallen off a cliff in recent years and he is currently struggling to overthrow the Chiefs with the Denver Broncos in the AFC West.
