Sources tell TMZ Jessica is dating ex San Francisco 49ers tight end Eric Johnson. He last played for the New Orleans Saints back in 2008. Johnson split from his wife earlier this year, filing for divorce in February.

Simpson -- whose show, "The Price of Beauty," returns to VH1 in 2011 -- began dating Johnson in May.

A source tells us they are "very happy."

I have one word for Jessica - REBOUND. Guys usually don't settle down with the first woman they date after separation/divorce.

I give him less than 3 months and he will be singing "Happy Trails" to her and he won't be seeing her again. Daddy Simpson has to give the OK. Let's watch and see what happens.
