VOTE: Hottest Football Players of 2014 Who Make You Actually Want to Watch Football

It’s that time of year again, when we tune into our televisions and flock to city stadiums to see which teams will make it to the Super Bowl! Some of us dive in because we love the game. Some are around to plan out their upcoming Super Bowl party list. (And a subset of those — fans of Madonna and Beyonce from past years — are wondering what they’ll do during a halftime show featuring The Red Hot Chili Peppers.) And then there’s a bunch of us (probably those same Madonna and Beyonce fans) who are watching — if we’re really honest about it — to check out all those huddled up hotties on the football field.

Yeah, that’s right. You’re in it for the beefcake.

It’s okay, you don’t have to admit it. Your secret is safe with us. Besides, it gives us an excuse to do searches like “Tom Brady shirtless” or “Colin Kaepernick tattoos” or “Cam Newton sexy” and get paid for it. It’s also educational, such as when we were trying to find shirtless pics of Jordy Nelson and Google auto-populated “Jordy Nelson bulge.” Yep, it’s a rough job, but as they say, someone’s gotta do it.

So, with that kind of dedication to the craft in mind, we found 9 of the hottest football players around. Check out the slide show at the top to see our selections, then vote from that list above. Then invite your friends along, since this is one football scrimmage they’ll probably be into.
