Philadelphia Eagles long snapper Jon Dorenbos may not have garnered attention for his two special teams tackles in 2006 en route to a tumultuous postseason, but his wife attracts fans by just showing up.
Considering Dorenbos is a professional magician, it's safe to say he completed a trick for the ages in getting this beauty to say yes.
A wide receiver in Philadelphia from 2006-2009, and then again in 2010, Hank Baskett never found a cozy spot on any of the three teams he played for, despite being named special teams MVP with the Eagles in 2007.
However, his marriage to Playboy model Kendra Wilkinson has somehow kept football fans engaged and the sports world closely attached as he undoubtedly continues to search for a team that requires his services.
Matt Flynn may have been warming the bench last season while his Cheeseheads were winning the Super Bowl, but the former LSU signal-caller certainly has an edge on most of his peers when it comes to WAGs.

She may be despised for her attention-grabbing nature, but sexy reality star Kim Kardashian has dated enough athletes to earn her way onto almost every WAG list.

It's safe to say she hasn't looked back since the two split.
It's only natural that Tom Brady gets two WAGs on this list, considering his list of conquests is far from lacking.

As the WAG of bruising runner Thomas Jones since 2007, actress Meagan Good is no stranger to the ferocious nature that is omnipresent around playoff time.

Married to Jeff Garcia since 2007, this beauty had the chance to cheer on the exuberant Buccaneers after her husband led them to the playoffs in his first year in Tampa Bay.
Dating Big Blue defensive end Osi Umenyiora during his run to Super Bowl XLII with the feisty Giants, Victoria's Secret Angel Selita Ebanks must have been quite the spark plug for a team yearning for an epic upset.
History was made on and off the field.
