For a professional football player, there might be one thing as coveted as a Super Bowl ring, as essential to performance as time spent in the gym, and as pep-inducing as an inspiring coach—and that is sleep!  

Because of the direct impact rest has on physical and mental performance, it’s no surprise that several NFL players have turned to SNOO to help their families snag more shuteye. With a record of adding 1-2+ hours of sleep per night, SNOO is basically the MVP of baby beds. So, when these NFL families “go long” we’re talking in hours of sleep, baby! Check out a few of the NFL players that have turned to SNOO.

Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs Quarterback

The reigning Super Bowl champ’s baby baller won’t arrive until after football season ends, but Mahomes and fiancée Brittany Matthews are ready for her to rush into the picture! Matthews recently showed off her new nursery, which is all set up with SNOO for when their pint-sized player makes her debut.

Ricardo Allen, Atlanta Falcons Safety

Ricardo Allen’s second daughter, Lennon, made her debut during the most grueling part of the football season (aka when sleep was key), Allen's wife, Grace writes on her blog. Fortunately, with SNOO, little Lennon was able to sleep for three hours at a time right away. 

“Not only is this bed amazing for nighttime sleep, it’s amazing for when you just really need a shower, or to feed yourself, or to switch the laundry. It’s literally like having an extra set of hands in your home at all times,” she wrote about this “game-changer.” 

Will Grier, Carolina Panthers Quarterback

What does a QB have in common with a bb? An appreciation for the soothing powers of SNOO. “I need this in an adult size, please,” Grier’s wife, Jeanne, posted on Instagram. “Same,” the QB chimed in.

Golden Tate, Giants Wide Receiver

Golden Tate has made some epic catches in his day, and now, his daughter is catching some epic ZZZ’s! The Giants wide receiver credits SNOO with helping daughter Londyn “get that phase 5 sleep.”

Kyle Rudolph, Minnesota Vikings Tight End

The two-time Pro Bowler got nostalgic about his youngest’s SNOO days in a #TBT: “Can’t believe it’s been a year since this video of Henry was taken. Seems like just yesterday. Jordan and I can’t say it enough how much we loved our SNOO. Baby Henry loved it too,” he wrote

Zach Miller, Former Chicago Bears Tight End

Who currently holds the title of “Happiest Baby on the Block”? It’s Miller’s son Breckin, the since-retired Bear declared on Instagram.

Deion Jones, Atlanta Falcons Linebacker

::Sportscaster voice:: It seems like there might be as much competition for the title of Happiest Baby on the Block as there is for the Vince Lombardi trophy because Jones tweeted that his daughter “is the Happiest Baby on the Block.” (We’ll let the refs make the call!)
