Aly Raisman boyfriend is ex-NFL TE Colton Underwood
Sometimes it pays to take a shot, no matter how long the odds are. After all, just look at what Colton Underwood did.
Underwood, who had stints with three different NFL teams but has never played in an NFL game, is dating gymnast Aly Raisman.
Raisman went public with Underwood at the SI Sportsperson of the Year awards show on Monday in Brooklyn. She revealed they’ve been dating since August after Underwood asked her out via social media.
@Colt3FIVE thanks for the sweet video…. looking forward to meeting you :)

Underwood had a little bit of an “in” thanks to one of his teammates being married to former Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson.
“I was just asking a girl on a date and it sort of turned into something much bigger,” Underwood said in August. “She did a great job and her whole team did of representing the USA. So I felt like it was only right for me to send a congratulations and extend an offer when she got back and had some down time.”
It just goes to show that no matter how long the odds are, sometimes it’s worth throwing up a Hail Mary. You never know when someone’s going to come down with it in the end zone.
