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."

So, does he have kids? Is this to let us know ahead of time that he was split from his wife before he met Jessica, so we don't view her as a homewrecker? Just wondering.

"Tight end" and Jessica Simpson should not be in the same sentence together!

hmmm    

Oh lets not go the cheating angle with Jessica. I think a football player cheated numerous times & so did a rockstar on Jessica. Lets let the girl have some peace & live her life. I doubt thsi is even true for that matter.. Why the hell she woudl date another athlete I highly doubt it after the treatment she was given & still given.

NAH suck it up TMZ you can do better then this I'm sure.lol You been had if you even have a source. lol

She's lost her looks. Probably won't age into a beauty either.

LOL...she's not a draw for TMZ or anything else. It's a slow news day.
