eric johnson footballEric Johnson is all over the news today for being engaged to Jessica Simpson but do you know who he is?

Eric Johnson is a name that before today I could not have told you one single piece of information about. With the recent news of his engagement to Jessica Simpson, I figured it was time to find out just who in the hell this guy was. It turns out he used to play football in the NFL and as of now his full time job is being engaged to Jessica Simpson.

Eric Johnson played football for Yale and was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers. Johnson played in San Fran for four years where he acquired 825 yards as a result of 82 catches. (two touchdowns) After his 4 year stint in San Francisco, Eric Johnson was picked up by the New Orleans Saints and played one season in 2007. Soon after in 2008, Saints picked Johnson back up but released him fairly quickly. Since his last release from the New Orleans Saints in 2008, Eric Johnson has not played football.

Just this past May is when Johnson started dating Jessica Simpson. Prior to Simpson, Eric Johnson was married for five years to Keri Johnson. I guess that is one thing the two have in common, they have both previously been married.

While he may not be getting paid to play in the NFL; who needs money when you are engaged to Jessica Simpson? All jokes aside, we wish Johnson and Simpson a happy marriage.
