Jessica Simpson Dating Ex-NFL Player Eric Johnson

July 5, 2010

It’s another football hookup for Jess. By now you’ve heard the news of Jessica Simpson dating ex-NFL player Eric Johnson, who recently played for the New Orleans Saints back in 2008. Get more details plus photos and video below!

Jessica Simpson

You may remember she dated another NFL’er in the likes of Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo. They split after two years of togetherness. Well actually, he broke things off with her…on her birthday, no less!

So maybe this second time around with an NFL player, okay, ex-NFL player, may prove to be better luck for the singer. It’s unclear how long the two have been together, but some reports suggest that they started dating in May. A source revealed to PEOPLE:

“She is happy that she found a great guy. She’s really happy.”

Jess’ 30th birthday is this Saturday, and tweeted recently, “I think [30] is going to be a good year for me. I can find love anywhere.”

That’s great news for Jessica. The poor thing has been so unlucky in love of late, and hopefully this time around she’s finally found a good guy who won’t break up with her on Saturday and who won’t air their sexual relations to the world. I’m betting he won’t.

So a bit more info on the ex-NFL player. He played for the San Francisco 49ers after being drafted by them in 2001 and the tight end remained with them until 2006. In 2007, he signed with the Saints, and did so again in 2008. According to TMZ, he is recently divorced. Wanna see a picture of him? You can see a photo of him here. The 30-year-old is quite handsome, don’t you think?

Okay, folks. Let’s hear what you have to say about Jessica Simpson dating again. Although we don’t know much about her ex-NFL player beau, he’s certainly easy on the eyes and seems to make her happy. Best of luck to you Jess. We’re rooting for you!!
