Because they wear all sorts of pads and gear, and helmets that almost completely cover their face and head, most fans probably never bother thinking about style in the NFL. It’s in stark contrast to the NBA, where players like Russell Westbrook and Dwyane Wade are known almost as much for their bizarre outfits as their All-Star play on the court. In football, it’s entirely about the game: face-less players playing more for the logo on the helmet rather than the name on the back of the jersey.
But that’s not to say these dudes don’t have style or swagger. We all know they have confidence — you can’t watch a game, see some of those insane end zone dances, and not understand these dudes have absurd amounts of confidence. Their swagger shines in off the field through press conferences, media appearances, and, of course, Instagram. On the ‘gram, the league has more than a few standouts, guys who are stunting every single day, rocking new sneakers and showing out. From Robert Griffin III to Joe Haden, there are more than a handful of monster sneakerheads.
The season is in full swing, quickly destroying preseason myths like how the Tampa Bay Bucs were going to be sleepers and how the Dallas Cowboys will never be good as long as Tony Romo is their quarterback.
As you get ready for another batch of games, and prepare yourself for another super quiet trade deadline, we’re breaking down The Most Swagged-Out Players in the NFL.
