Off The Field: NFL Style Icons

When you think of football players, you probably think of mammoth individuals with tremendous athletic ability slamming into each other as hard as humanly possible. Eye black, shoulder pads, cleats and their team’s uniform are what they wear as they go to battle on Sundays. Most wouldn’t call this the peak of stylish work wear.

Off of the field, however, the NFL boasts some of the leading style figures in professional sports. From suits to casual wear to jeans and t-shirts, take a look below and see which players rock the looks best!

Victor Cruz

The salsa dancing Giants All-Pro wide receiver is already a Super Bowl champion, but his fashion sense has established him at the very top of the NFL style pyramid.
