Jessica Simpson appears to be developing a pattern of dating NFL men. Her newest boyfriend is former San Francisco 49ers tight end Eric Johnson. They have reportedly been dating for several months. She had a previous relationship with Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo that ended on the eve of her 29th birthday.

The new man is currently an NFL free agent who is looking for another opportunity to play. Johnson, 30, last played for the New Orleans Saints, who released him in two years ago. Eric was born and raised in Massachusetts and began his collegiate career at Yale.

Simpson recently ‘tweeted’ that she was on a new health kick called Total Vitality and is working with faith healer Master Wang. She said: “I shocked my system with a vegan diet, special Pu-ehr tea from China and cupping.”

Simpson spent part of the 4th of July weekend at the Greenbrier Casino Club grand opening in West Virginia. Lionel Richie was entertaining the crowd. Jessica sent a ‘tweet’ off to Nicole Richie: “Lionel Richie has inspired me – “I’m On My Way” to 30 & ready 2 rock it! Your dad’s a STUD!”
