Turns out Hayden Panettiere is in fact dating a New York Jets football player after all. Just not QB Mark Sanchez.
After splitting up with boxer Wladimir Klitschko, the Actress is dating Jets Rookie Scotty McKnight, Us Magazine reports.
Pannettiere, 21, and McKnight, 23, the Jets WR were seen leaving a diner together in West Hollywood, Calif., last week. The two know each other through McKnight’s teammate and childhood friend… Mark Sanchez. It all comes full circle.
“I’m a huge Jets fan and became very good friends with Mark and his buddies,” Panettiere told Us on June 2. “I’ve always been that girl who has a lot of dude friends. I’m into sports so we have a lot in common.”
So maybe that’s why Panettiere and Sanchez were seen together so much the last few weeks; she was getting pointers on how to land the Rookie.
