Tony Romo’s NFL career has been nothing short of stupendous. Now that he is retired, Romo is a broadcaster who is known as one of the best voices in gameday reporting, co-anchoring with Jim Nantz. Romo is CBS Sports’ lead color analyst. Quarterbacking for the Cowboys, Romo racked up records in passing touchdowns and passing yards.
On top of that, Romo married Candice Crawford, a stunning former beauty pageant queen and winner of the Miss Missouri title. The couple married in 2011. In 2017, they welcomed their third son.
Robert Woods & Alexandra Woods
Signing with the Rams in 2017 meant Robert Woods could be near his wife. The strapping wide receiver isn’t shy about exposing his sensitive side. Celebrating their wedding anniversary, Robert Woods wrote, “Still in awe of this day. I married my best friend.” He went on to say, "I appreciate all that you do. I love you @a.barbee, and I always will.” Aww!
Woods kicked off his career with the Buffalo Bills. With his love on the West coast, they spent a lot of time booking cross-country flights. But now that he and “Wifey” are both on the West Coast, she’s his biggest cheerleader.
Baker Mayfield & Emily Wilkinson
Baker Mayfield is a quarterback for the Cleveland Browns. The Heisman Trophy winner has 7,552 passing yards in the NFL. Another career highlight was meeting his wife.
Mayfield was dying to date Emily Wilkinson after he met her through mutual friends who had been encouraging them to date. To get her attention, he followed her on Instagram and then unfollowed her. He tried this strategy several times, following and unfollowing until finally, they began talking. His plan worked masterfully. The couple tied the knot by the next summer.
Charles Tillman & Jackie Tillman
Chicago native and legendary Bears cornerback Charles Tillman played 12 seasons with the Chicago Bears. He’s a two-time Pro Bowler and the 2013 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year. After a sensational career of slick moves, executing over 900 tackles, he made a new move.
Since his 2015 retirement, just call him FBI agent Charles Tillman. He graduated from the FBI training academy last year.

Rob Gronkowski & Camille Kostek
It’s not easy to stay in the spotlight next to Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover model and former Patriots cheerleader Camille Kostek. But Rob Gronkowski has stood his ground. He’s had an outstanding run with the Patriots. Gronkowski’s a five-time Pro Bowler and three-time Super Bowl champ. He led in touchdowns in 2011 and is a four-time First-team All-Pro. Whew!
The two have been dating since 2015 after she resigned from the Patriots cheerleading squad; as per league rules—dating is forbidden. She said, “Once I resigned is when we finally met.” But she did admit to knowing Rob before she quit. It was around the time she got the swimsuit cover when they began dating.
