While Nico has been making major headlines after signing his NFL contract, he’s been headlining for other reasons as well. We checked out several social media platforms and found that the dude has the ladies going crazy over him! Everywhere we looked, there were hundreds of online comments of ladies talking about the “sexy Marley grandson,” they’d love to get with. They even offered Nico propositions of the sexual persuasion if you know what we mean, LOL.

We’re sure Lauryn Hill’s former ‘step-son’ is loving the attention, but the good thing is that Nico is hella focused on his career.

His Pops also revealed, in an interview with TMZ, that he’s very “coachable” and just an all around good guy. He says that Nico’s also aware that joining the Redskins is just an opportunity for him and that his name will not guarantee him a secure job…he must work to keep it on his own.

Nico talked about how he landed his contract with the Redskins in an interview on

“The Redskins, they reached out to me right after the draft within 10 minutes of the last pick, right around that time,” Marley told “Then there was the Saints and Cardinals, they also extended the same rookie camp invite. I chose Washington, I had a good conversation and something just told me to come here so I chose Washington. The Saints, I was in New Orleans for four years. I just really felt Washington.”

Nico’s siblings are very proud of their brother as well and have been sending him congrats on social media. Lauryn Hill’s and Rohan Marley’s daughter, Selah, wrote this on Instagram:

@selahmarley: Yoooooo my big bro is in the NFL!!!! I mean.. we been knew this was gonna happen, but it’s lit to see it manifest!! Shoutout to u bro.. been working hard since u touched a football & it’s definitely paying off.. continue to inspire the family yo.. this is gonna hugely impact all our siblings. More life, more blessings.. let’s goooooo @nico2marley

Nico’s dad was an athlete and played both soccer and football back in the day, but growing up in Jamaica Rohan didn’t have the opportunity to join the NFL, he only dreamed of it as he watched the one team he was able to get on the TV channel in his hometown and that team is the Washington Redskins. Wow…talk about life coming full circle…

We wish much success to Nico Marley and are looking forward to seeing that Marley jersey on the field come NFL season. In the words of his late great Rastafarian grandfather, “Jah Bless” Nico Marley.
