These Horrendously Dressed NFL Players Should Just Wear Uniforms 24/7

Seriously, these outfits are out of bounds.

With Super Bowl 50 just around the bend, we’re definitely ready to hike ourselves right into the football fray, chow down on some party foods and hopefully laugh ’til it hurts at whatever commercials have been cooked up for this year.

There won’t be much in the way of a Sunday best fashion show, of course, because the players’ll be sporting their team gear, but throughout the season a lot of these players have been scoring major points this year with their off-the-field on fleek ensembles. There have also been those who’ve made some major misses that have cost them big time (lookin’ at you with those pants, Cam Newton). Here’s a look back at some of the most terrible threads NFL stars have ever dressed up in.

  • 1 Cam Newton

    The Carolina Panthers QB said he wore these ridic $800+ dollar Versace pants-heard-round-the-world because they matched “the mantra of the colors” of Super Bowl 50. But whatever. Those jokers were hideous. They look like something custom designed for Gloria Estefan circa 1985, and even then they’d still be wrong. (To be fair, the beard bros Cam photobombed here weren’t lookin’ their swaggest either.)

  • 2 Peyton Manning

    Peyton’s long-term love affair with dad jeans has been a problem for years. Whatever compels the guy to only pick out pants that belong in the Museum of NO, we just do not know. Someone call this man a stylist already, geez. He should really be singing “Man, I really need new pants” to that Nationwide jingle tune in the next commercial.

  • 3 Odell Beckham Jr.

    There’s fly, and then there’s flop. This suit makes him look like he lost a bet that night and had to wear the most ridiculous and oddly-shaped clothes in the store.

  • 4 DeSean Jackson

    This could’ve worked if it was just about the short-sleeved jacket. But then you throw the un-tucked shirt, excessive accessorizing, and the fact that these are freakin’ capri pants he’s wearing here, and it’s hella fail.

  • 5 Rob Gronkowski

    Whoever walked up to Gronk with this suit and said, “Bro, this’ll be a good look for you” is a terrible liar and should be punished.

  • 6 Domata Peko
    Splash News
    Someone needs to tackle Domata Peko and take it him shopping just to point out everything he should not-a pick-o because this man is riding low on the sartorial struggle bus.

  • 7 Ben Roethlisberger

    Among his myriad of personal issues is Ben’s uncanny inability to dress. This shirt should be burned in effigy for being too hideous for this world.

  • 8 Aldon Smith

    Someone needs to raid this Oakland star’s closet and liberate all of these crazy suits he seems to love so much. The good news is that Aldon seems to be in on his own joke here.

  • 9 Jared Allen

    When he’s not on the field, Jared Allen clearly spends all of his downtime hanging out at dude ranches and binge-watching his complete John Wayne DVD collection.

  • 10 Brett Favre

    Brett Favre is a notorious under-dresser. Seriously, we’re wondering if he’s not got some secret allergy to ties. Either that, or he associates cues like “business casual” and “black tie optional” with “yes to dumpy golf course gear.”

  • 11 Colin Kaepernick

    Another repeat offender for the Nice Try But No list is CK7. We give him points for creative ambition and all, but dude can’t pull off half the stuff he puts on.

  • 12 Tim Tebow

    Ohhh, Tim, Tim, Tim, Tim … Sometimes, he’s on it so hard, and sometimes he’s missed the mark so far that we can only assume he’s coming from some kind of ’90s boy band audition. Whoever’s dressing him must have one helluva sense of humor.

  • 13 Jay Cutler

    Jay’s wife Kristin Cavallari might be hip to trends, but left to his own devices, the guy can’t even tell which clothes go with which seasons. So, he just throws on whatever and doesn’t seem to care if it looks silly. Someone should definitely alert him to the fact that jorts are never in style.

  • 14 Andrew Luck

    The Colts QB kinda always looks like his mom still lays out his clothes for him every morning. He’s fifth grade chic at best.

  • 15 Johnny Manziel

    Johnny Football has a lot of issues right now, chief among them his inability to steer clear of clashing prints. This ensemble looks like he went blind-fishing in the menswear bargain bin, pulled out whatever he first laid his hands on and said, “Yep. That’ll work.”

  • 16 Matthew Stafford

    We have to imagine that Matthew Stafford has just never met a tailor that he did like. Because his suits are always so bulky, malproportioned and worst of all completely outdated that they look like he borrowed them from his dad’s archives. Cute guy; terrible dresser.

  • 17 Joe Namath

    Nobody dresses as wacky as Joe Namath did without meaning to, so we just have to assume he spent all of his time off the field trolling everyone with what he wore. He might have been a talent for the ages, but his wardrobe was whack AF.

  • 18 Deion Sanders

    Props to Deion Sanders for having a multi-faceted career like no other, but whoever keeps giving him these awful brown suits is straight-up cruel.

  • 19 Jim McMahon

    Jim McMahon may be retired now, but his career of earning a place on celebrity worst-dressed lists is still going strong. During his heyday in the ’80s, he wore fur-embellished jackets and Wild Thing hair, and to this day he still can’t resist a tacky fabric.

Speaking of the big game, everyone knows that the most important part of Super Bowl Sunday is the FOOD. So we’ve got master chef Fadia Kader to up your snack game with these 3 unexpected—but delicious— delicacies.
