Jessica Simpson dating former NFLer Eric Johnson

Tbd-jessicasimpson070610 Let's see: Jessica Simpson has put on a few pounds, is dating a football player and hasn't been working in months. Wow, is this 2008?

We don't really care about minor weight gain, but People says Jess is is dating former San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints tight end Eric Johnson. No, not the guitar-playing Eric Johnson. That would almost make some sense.

"She is happy that she found a great guy," a friend tells the mag, which notes they've been dating since May. "She's really happy."

We don't really think you can draw too many comparisons between Johnson and Simpson's former beau, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. For one, Romo has been playing in the NFL for the last two years, unlike Eric. But then, Eric went to Yale, so he has that going for him. We wonder why he's with Jessica Simpson, in that case.

In other footballer news, disgraced former Miss California USA Carrie Prejean married Oakland Raiders quarterback Kyle Boller in San Diego on Friday, but eh, who cares about them?
