20 Athletes Who Are Absolutely Crushing It Despite Having Dadbods

by Adam Silvers

It's hard to be 100 percent sure how Dadbods took over the Internet, but regardless, the trend has swept across the Web like wildfire.

Question: Who can post pictures of a #Dadbod? Answer: Everyone.

From college bros to Leo DiCaprio, men from all walks of life are riding the Dadbod wave.

And, you know what? It's freaking awesome. Apparently, it's no longer sexy to have an eight-pack and chiseled arms.

No, what's driving women wild now are dudes who clearly have some muscle, but also enjoy a casual beer or 10.

In addition to Leo and every other dude in your life, you know who else has a Dadbod? Some of your favorite sports stars.

Here are 20 athletes who are crushing it, despite having Dadbods.

Brandon Weeden, Dallas Cowboys

Brandon Weeden is a dad bod animal. Hitting his stride just in time for the summer. — Dad Bods (@YearOfTheDadBod) April 14, 2015

Nothing says Dadbod like good times on a boat and American flag shorts. That's funny, those look like beers in the bottom left corner of the picture.

Jay Cutler, Chicago Bears

Is anyone really surprised to see Jay Cutler on this list? Dude is the living embodiment of Dadbod.

Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

When you're at the family barbecue and your uncle hops off the grill to show you his spiral. — Dad Bods (@YearOfTheDadBod) April 14, 2015

Looks like Jameis could use a little less dipping butter with those crab legs.

Zach Randolph, Memphis Grizzlies

I have the sneaking suspicion teammate Marc Gasol has a Dadbod, too. Smart move leaving the jersey on, Marc.

Pablo Sandoval, Boston Red Sox

If a dude's nickname is the “Kung Fu Panda,” you know he's rocking that Dadbod.

Adel Taarabt, Queens Park Rangers

When QPR end up getting relegated from the Premier League this season, it won't be because of Adel Taarabt and his Dadbod. Homie was on loan at AC Milan this season.

Pat Maloney, Ball State Cardinals

Dad Bod of The Week: ball state offensive lineman Pat Maloney. — Dad Bods (@YearOfTheDadBod) April 12, 2015

Do it for the ladies, Pat. Do it for the ladies.

Boris Diaw, San Antonio Spurs

When Boris Diaw isn't winning NBA championships, he and his Dadbod do appearances at bachelorette parties.

Prince Fielder, Texas Rangers

Prince Fielder giving the people what they want! #DadBod @YearOfTheDadBod — Conner Batchelder (@nananaBatchman) April 8, 2015

Apparently, ESPN The Magazine knew Dadbod was hot before anyone else.

Glen Davis, Los Angeles Clippers

When you win an NBA title, you get to stunt on everyone with your Dadbod.

Eli Manning, New York Giants

From Super Bowl champ to dad bod model, I give you quarterback, Eli Manning — Dad Bods (@YearOfTheDadBod) April 11, 2015

After you win two Super Bowls and help bring three daughters into this world, you get… an A+ Dadbod.

Andrew Bynum, Free Agent

No wonder Bynum is out of work right now, no team wants to sign a dude who can't make it up the court.

Chris Paul, Los Angeles Lakers

CP3 is about as talented as it gets at the point guard position. He's also got a Dadbod that was born to assist… with the creation of this post.

John Daly, Pro Golfer

Shit, that's not a Dadbod. That's a dude who's in his third trimester.

Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers

Olivia Munn is really into long walks on the beach, Super Bowl rings and Dadbods.

Matt Harvey, New York Mets

Harvey isn't Gotham's Dark Knight because he's one of just three pitchers with five wins already this year; he's Batman because he rocks a Dadbod.

Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions

We're starting to see a trend among starting NFL quarterbacks… the Dadbod.

Adriano, Free Agent

How do you say Dadbod in Portuguese?

Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers

Rule No. 232: A great Dadbod exponentially improves with the addition of neon sunglasses.

Carmelo Anthony, New York Knicks

Chill, Melo, we're not messing with your Dadbod. Or anyone else's for that matter.
