Emily Maynard reportedly dating NFL football player Jeremy Shockey

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 10/05/2011 

Emily Maynard reportedly has a new man.

The former fifteenth-season The Bachelor bachelorette is currently dating Carolina Panthers football player Jeremy Shockey, Us Weekly reported Wednesday.

"They were set up on a blind date," a source close to the 25-year-old single mom told Us.

Maynard and the 31-year-old NFL player were reportedly set up by a mutual friend on the Panthers staff.

"They've been out five times," the source added.

"Emily thinks Jeremy is nice, but she's just having fun!"

While rumors that Maynard was being considered to be the next The Bachelorette star circulated earlier this year, host Chris Harrison claimed they were "greatly exaggerated" in July.  He did, however, admit the idea of casting her had been discussed.

The Bachelor star Brad Womack selected and proposed to Maynard over fellow bachelorette Chantal O'Brien during ABC's March broadcast of the show's season finale, but the couple began encountering relationship problems shortly thereafter and Maynard officially confirmed they had split in June.
