Mathieu’s NBA Dancer GF Turning Heads


Tyrann Mathieu was no doubt crushed at not being selected in the first round of the NFL draft on Thursday night. Regardless of how bleak things may seem, he does have one very bright light in his life: girlfriend Sydni Paige Russell, a dancer for the New Orleans Pelicans.

Russell was one of the “WAGs of College Football Players” (WAGs = Wives and Girlfriends) we wrote about at the start of the 2012 season. An LSU sophomore, she has stood by her man even after he was dismissed from the Tigers and has garnered a lot of attention this week.

If Russell’s Instagram page is any indication, she’ll be joining Mathieu when he joins an NFL roster for the upcoming season and will eventually become Mrs. Mathieu.
