Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Maurice Leggett is the total package — fit and sexy, handsome and adorable and, above all, well-rounded. We’d like to take him home to momma, but we thought we’d introduce him to you ladies first. Tell us what you think.

Originally from McKeesport, Pennsylvania, Maurice is the eldest of three and grew up around his 29 female cousins. Although he was surrounded by women his whole life Maurice says, “You can never really know a woman, but I have a general idea.”

“At the end of the day I feel like a woman just wants you to be 100 percent truthful, to make her feel special and to treat her like she’s number one,” Maurice says. We’d say that’s pretty accurate.

“I just want a woman to be there and show support” he says. Any candidates? It’s too bad that position is filled. Maurice says he fell in love with his girlfriend because they “always have fun. There’s never a dull moment.”

Maurice is a proud dad of a 3-year-old son, Malik, and a 6-month-old daughter, Malia. “I just want my kids to say I’m the best father that the world has to offer,” he says. That’s pretty sexy.

“I want people to think that I’m more than just a jock,” Maurice admits. “My passion has always been music.”
In fact Maurice was in Chorus for eight years and minored in voice and piano at Valdosta State University.

The main focus of Maurice’s entertainment company is music and while he’s more than capable of getting on the mic, he plans to “stay behind the scenes as much as possible.”

Maurice says he loves a woman who “enjoys life no matter how tough is it. Everyone has problems, but you can’t let your problems get to you.”

Music isn’t this hunk’s only hidden talent. Maurice loves to cook and says the perfect date would involve him grilling up a steak for two. He even prepared Christmas dinner last year. Don’t you just love a man who knows his way around the kitchen?

We hate to say goodbye to Maurice, but we love to watch him walk away. Look at that back, ladies! What a way to start our week off.
