Chrysten Crockett is an interesting person on this list because she was an accomplished athlete in high school as a volleyball player. After graduation she left the sport behind, attended college and went off to work in public relations before leaving that world for something more fulfilling.
Chrysten started an Instagram page to promote wellness and fitness and her hard work paid off as she was featured on NBC's Today Show. Since then she has competed in fitness competition as well as becoming a nutritionist and coach.

Purnell stepped away from the game after the 2017 season and became a mom to twin boys.

After nearly three years away from the game, the gridiron legend is a beautiful as ever with one of the best mom-bods on the planet.
