Last week, the paparazzi caught Hayden Panettiere and Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez grabbing a bite to eat, and rumors swirled that the two were kindling a romance. It turns out the two are just friends, but Panettiere is dating Jets player and Mark Sanchez's best friend, Scotty McKnight. McKnight, who was selected in the seventh round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Jets, has been best friends with Sanchez since his childhood. The rookie receiver met Panettiere, 21, when Sanchez brought him to a pre-Oscar party that the actress was also attending. A source close to the couple even said that McKnight was there with Panettiere and Sanchez when photographers were focused on the two getting burgers. A source told E! News, "It's so funny because Scotty was there. But everyone saw her with Mark and took pics." McKnight, 23, played for the University of Colorado at the collegiate level. Panettiere recently broke up with heavyweight boxer Wladimir Klitschko.
