    Jessica Simpson has been through a reality-show marriage to Nick Lachey, a much-talked about (by him) affair with singer John Mayer after her divorce, and rumored romances with comedian Dane Cook and Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine.

    Most recently, Jessica had an on-again, off-again relationship with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, which ended messily on her 29th birthday. Her two-year relationship with Tony was marred by criticism from Dallas Cowboys fans, who accused Jessica of jinxing their team, and having it falling short of their Super Bowl dreams.

    But it seems that jinx or no, Jessica is up for another football-player romance.

    Jessica is now dating former San Francisco 49ers tight end Eric Johnson, reported The website said they met through “mutual friends.”

    Johnson’s roguish grin and athletic build apparently complement a sharp mind – the Massachusetts-raised footballer graduated from Yale University in 2001.

    Considering Jessica is known as the woman who once thought buffalo chicken wings came from buffaloes, we’re not sure that she and brainy Eric are the best match, but we wish them the best.

    And San Francisco fans, prepare to never see your team win in the playoffs again, even though Johnson no longer plays for the 49ers.

    You were probably planning on that anyway, given their string of sad seasons, but now it is official!

    Addendum: A helpful reader points out that “Johnson last played for the Saints. Are you prepared to make the same statement about their playoff chances?”

    No, we are not.
