When I heard the news of Jessica Simpson‘s engagement to NFL free-agent Eric Johnson, I first thought, “Who?” And then I considered it, and that term “free agent,” and I realized that he’s a football player without a team, (aka unemployed).
So, just what does the Yale grad and former tight end for the New Orleans Saints do with his spare time? Well, a source and pal of the couple told E! News that Johnson is constantly creating new startups and, “His new one is a plan to start a fast-food vegan restaurant in L.A. and eventually expand them across the country.” The source added, “Jessica’s supportive of everything he wants to do, so she’s into it.”
Guess this means Jessica won’t be taking part in any more Chicken of the Sea photo-ops.
On the one hand, there really aren’t any vegan fast food options—so he may have found a niche here— but then again most vegans tend to be on the picky side when it comes to freshly prepared and healthy choices. All we can say is best of luck!
