PLAYERS: Scotty McKnight
TEAMS: New York Jets

Via Helmet2Helmet:

For well over a year, Hayden Panettiere and Scotty McKnight were going strong as one of the popular “it” couples.

Though, like many — if not all — of those relationships, it’s come to an end.

According to TMZ, Panettiere and McKnight have officially broken up.

Sources tell the gossip site that the split occurred a few weeks ago, but the two remain “really good friends” and “will probably be back together sometime down the road.”

The 23-year-old Panettiere and 24-year-old McKnight began dating last July. In that time, Panettiere has starred in the show Nashville, whereas McKnight has failed to hold down a job.

A 2011 seventh-round pick of the Jets, McKnight, a wide receiver, spent his rookie season on the team’s practice squad before landing on IR with a torn ACL. He was re-signed by New York in March, but subsequently waived less than five months later and is currently a free agent.

McKnight shouldn’t feel too bad, however. Despite this news, he’s infinitely better off than Mark Sanchez, his childhood best friend who persuaded the Jets to draft him. Plus he avoided that whole cursed jersey thing.

In times such as these, it’s all about perspective.

Braylon Edwards back with the "Idiots"

But then again, the Jets are mathematically still in...
