It's not the first time Kardashian has been linked with a football player.

In 2007, she began dating the then-New Orleans Saints star Reggie Bush. Their relationship played out in front of the cameras on the first season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. They eventually broke up in 2010 due to the busy demands of their respective careers.

In 2010, Bush reflected on his with Kardashian, telling the Rachael Ray on her talk show that the media attention that came with the territory was rough on him. "I play football, and most football players are camera shy,” he said at the time. “We just want to be left alone, we just want to stick to what we do.” He added that while he doesn’t love the cameras, “I do it because it’s important to [Kim].”

This past summer, Kardashian was spotted looking friendly with legendary quarterback Tom Brady, but it was just that — friendship.

Michael Rubin, who hosted the July 4th party where the pair were first seen chatting, said two weeks later: "Honestly, they're just friends" and that he and his friends "always want to laugh" about the "crazy rumors" that pop up.
