Mark Sanchez: I'm Not Dating Jamie-Lynn Sigler

A few eyebrows were raised when it was rumored last week that New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez was dating actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler. The pair was photographed together at a Tribeca event, and a source told UsMagazine.com that the couple was "flirting and talking all night."

It turns out the rumors may have been baseless.

Sanchez spoke with KLAC Los Angeles and denied that there was anything happening between him and Sigler. SportsRadioInterviews.com has the transcript:

"No, I met her at an event at the Tribeca Film Festival, and we were both compensated for being there and both happened to be at the same place. So they took all these pictures of us watching the video, kind of doing what we were supposed to do so it looked like we were awfully close. But yeah, she's a sweetheart, we've hung out across New York. She's a great girl but I mean she could probably do much better than me."
