HAYDEN PANETTIERE is reportedly dating New York Jets’ SCOTTY MCKNIGHT. According to the latest Hollywood gossip the newly single Panettiere is seeing another athlete, McKnight, 23, who’s recently been drafted by the Jets.

Didn’t we last hear Panettiere seeing McKnight’s teammate Mark Sanchez just a few days ago? Of course that rumor has been denied by both parties.

“I’m a huge Jets fan and became very good friends with Mark and his buddies,” Panettiere explained.”I’ve always been that girl who has a lot of dude friends. I’m into sports so we have a lot in common.”

“Every person that I stand next to in this industry is a guy I’m going to be linked to – that’s just inevitably the way it goes,” she added.

Panettiere has split from her Ukrainian heavyweight champion boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko just last month.

I can so see Scotty being Hayden’s type; she seems to have a thing for athletes.

Do you think Hayden and Scotty make a hot couple?
