Football Player's Tackle of Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader Was So Romantic (VIDEO)


Jason Whitton cheerleader

It's too bad that Dallas Cowboy's tight end Jason Witten is married -- because his tackle yesterday of a unsuspecting cheerleader could have been the start of a beautiful relationship. Maybe even a reality show. Anyone who thinks cheerleaders are not athletes build for endurance needs to check out this video from yesterday's Cowboys/Dolphins game. Pom-pom girl Melissa Kellerman had her back to the play and didn't see the 6-foot-6, 265 pound freight train barrelling down on her. Maybe that was a good thing because he was moving fast, and if she hadn't been able to dodge, she would have likely tensed up and seriously injured herself in the impact.

In case you missed it yesterday, here's the clip:

I can't imagine that Witten's wife is too pleased by all the "romantic comedy" talk that's coming out of this video -- some sites are even lining up actors to play the couple, including Bradley Cooper and Jessica Alba. Or the fact that the 29-year-old Witten's right hand seems to cop a good feel before he rolls off the hot brunette. I must say Mrs. Witten does sound like a cool lady, however, so maybe she laughed just as much as Kellerman did when she got up and realized what had happened. Mrs. Witten husband are very involved in charities together, specifically domestic abuse causes, and they have two little boys together. Sounds like Kellerman couldn't have picked a nicer guy to get pummelled by.

Did you watch football yesterday? By choice?

Honestly, it looks to me like he was going to miss her, and he reached out and brought her down anyway.

To me it looked like his arm had been help down by the guy tackling him, right until a second before he ran into her. It could have just been his arm getting released and flying out at the wrong time. He maybe he used to to stop from going any further lol

I watch the cowboys no matter what they are my home team! And yes I saw this yesterday. It didn't look that suspicious to me I woudn't worry about it. It was actually kinda funny when I realized she wasn't hurt!

Ok, I have to revise my comment. I showed this to my geek brothers, who immediately took the video and slowed it down to frame-by-frame playback. Yes, the Cowboy did reach out to grab her, but only after the Dolphin started the tackle, and there was really no way to control the fall, which would have taken both of them into the Cheerleader. He grabbed her around the shoulders to spread the contact, and possibly twist her over him to protect her from the fall.
