We finally found something that Carson Kressley and Kim Zolciak-Biermann have in common: They've both been romantically involved with players on the Atlanta Falcons. Carson recently revealed to TMZ that he previously dated former Falcons defensive lineman Esera Tuaolo. He didn't divulge too many details about their relationship (like when it happened or for how long they dated), but the former Queer Eye for the Straight Guy fashion guru did have only the nicest things to say about the player, who publicly came out in 2002 following his retirement from the NFL two years prior. "I once went out with a football player who was in the Super Bowl, so there," Carson said. For the record, Esera did play in the 1999 Super Bowl while with the Falcons. "And he's just a friend of mine. But he’s awfully nice and he can sing and do other things.”

By the way, Esera has pipes. He's even performed the National Anthem before a football game between his former Green Bay Packers and the New York Jets. In addition to the Falcons and Packers, he also played for Carolina Panthers, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Minnesota Vikings during his nine-year career in pro football. Now he's a human rights and LGBT activist and a proud father, according to his Twitter profile, and even posts videos of himself covering songs on YouTube. Check it below.
