Report: Tony Romo's ex finds an ex-player to date

Some said Eric Johnson was an overachiever when he went from being a seventh-round draft pick out of Yale by the San Francisco 49ers to becoming a reliable part of the passing attack, catching a career-high 82 passes in 2004.

Now, he might be really overachieving. TMZ.com reports that Johnson, who last played in the NFL for the New Orleans Saints in 2007, is dating Jessica Simpson. Either that or Simpson has faded quite a bit from the spotlight since her relationship with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo ended.

Simpson is on VH1’s show “The Price of Beauty.” For some reason our DVR has not gotten around to recording that one yet. The couple has been a couple since May and Johnson reportedly divorced his wife earlier in the year.
