Most guys try to play it cool when it comes to girls.
They say they have no interest in settling down and that hanging with their dudes sounds a lot more appealing than having a house with a white picket fence.
While normal guys do this, athletes are almost notorious for it—even if they actually do get married!
With loads of money, fame and hot girls hanging around them, they have their pick of the litter when it comes to who they want to date and decide if (or when) they ever want to put a ring on it.
But just because they can, doesn't mean they do.
That's the case with these guys, the most eligible bachelor's in sports.

If there was ever doubt before, AD has proven himself to be the greatest running back in the NFL this year—especially when you consider he shredded his knee less than a year ago!
And while there's been some confusion whether or not he's engaged to his girlfriend, until we hear otherwise, we'll list him as one of the most sought-after athletes out there.
A-Rod loves himself so much, it might be hard to argue he's actually single—though being married to yourself doesn't exactly count.
If it weren't for his complete arrogance, A-Rod would undoubtedly land higher on our list. After all, the dude is baseball's highest paid player and has landed some really hot chicks before.
He's been married before, so he could get hitched again, but we have a feeling he's enjoying the single life too much to actually do that!
Harvard grad? Check.
Over 6' tall? Check
Popular as all hell? Check.
With traits like that, we're guessing most girls would be busting down a dude's door.
Lin being a bachelor seems to be more of his decision than lack of prospects, so we can definitely appreciate his enthusiasm to stay single.

He's the world's fastest man, so we can only guess there hasn't been a lady who's quick enough to actually catch him to ask for a ring.
Bolt seems like the type of guy who won't just settle for second-best, though he's believed to be dating someone now. She better hope to be the absolute most in order to stay with him.
We can only hope he's not as fast in the bedroom as he is on the track.

He might not be able to call himself a starting quarterback anymore, but that doesn't mean he still can't sling just about any girl he wants to in the Big Apple.

Let's state the case for why you have a better chance at winning the lottery than Ovie does at settling down.
He's a known partier, who gets to ball out anywhere he wants to, with hot girls hanging around his arm without a care in the world.
Would you give that up if you absolutely didn't have to?
Yeah, we didn't think so.

As the captain of the U.S. Men's soccer team, Bocanegra has some serious responsibilities while on the pitch.
Off of it though, he gets a chance to let loose and run the town with any girl he wants.
If he ever does decide to settle down, we've already given the perfect match for him, so we wonder if he'll actually takes it?

Urlacher's relationship with Jenny McCarthy recently ended, meaning the "Da Bears" best defender is back on the prowl in the Windy City.
As an absolute icon in the city of Chicago and widely considered one of the top linebackers to ever play the game, we doubt he has any trouble knocking boots with some other super hot chick.

The dude was able to land Rihanna, so we know he's got some serious game.
On top of that, he lives in Los Angeles and happens to be one of the game's most exciting (and richest) players.
Based on everything he's got going for him, we have a feeling Kemp's going to land someone that won't be just your plain Jane.

If Cam had it his way, he supposedly would prefer having a girlfriend.
Why one of the NFL's rising stars wouldn't want to live it up in Charlotte and stay single is a mystery to us, but hopefully he's not just ruining his single life by searching Match.com every night.
Who knows how Newton's career will end up, but being a former No. 1 pick, and having a Heisman trophy and NFL Rookie of the Year Award on his mantle probably won't keep him from snagging a complete smokeshow.

Harper's one of the best young talents in baseball—as evidenced by his NL Rookie of the Year Award—and is hoped to be the face of the game for years to come.
With that type of responsibility, one might think he'd be avoiding girls left and right—which is kind of true, depending on what you read.
Single or not, we have a good feeling Harper's not ready to change his bachelor ways just yet... he's only 20 years old.

Hands-down, there isn't a better receiver in all of football.
On top of making light work of defenders on the field, Megatron's an absolute beast of a man, standing at 6'5", and being able to run faster than most people can drive (okay, that's a little exaggeration).
Regardless, he's jacked, successful and rich, so it'd easy to see why any chick would want him.

Sure, there's rumors out there about who he's dating, but with KD being a top-five baller in the world, until he openly admits he's a one woman man, he'll be amongst the biggest bachelors.
Not that he cares, but based on the way he treats his teammates and their girlfriends, he could probably swoon some lucky lady... whenever he actually decides he wants to.

We know he's dating one of the sexiest women on the planet—and we hope he's not dumb enough to mess that up—but he finds himself on this list because of his dating history.
Dude's got some skeletons in the closet thanks to some SEX-capades that he's done in the past.
Since Irina hasn't yet locked him down, CR7 will always be close to the top of the most eligible bachelors around.

Lochte showed the world that he's one of the rising stars in swimming, thanks to his 2012 Olympics performance.
And thanks to his bro-ness, he's tossed himself into being a heartthrob for girls to chase around, and has been featured in multiple glossy and gossip mags.
He was even considered for ABC's The Bachelor—all but solidifying his spot on this list.

As the NHL's premier player, Sid the Kid's been labeled the savior of hockey—whenever the league actually decides it wants to play again.
With a Stanley Cup and MVP to his name, he's been able to prove he's up to the pressure.
So what girl wouldn't want him?
Well, one that has to live in Pittsburgh, but we know for a fact there's some cool stuff to do in that city.

He may be known to get into some trouble—and had been rumored with one of our "get out of jail for free" cards Bar Refaeli—but the Flying Tomato is king of his sport, reps his own clothing line and has had his own featured video game since he was 22 years old.
So not only is White one of the coolest dudes on the face of the planet, but he happens to be the gold standard in his sport.
Oh, and he has a soft side too, cutting his trademark mane for a good cause.

Though he's a huge bro, Gronk's been known to show interest in some seriously hot girls. With a resume like that, there's girls who are more than likely going to throw themselves at him, like a Tom Brady touchdown pass.
As a rich, 23-year-old rising star, we doubt he'll be giving up his status as one of sports' ultimate bachelors anytime soon.
