Samantha Steele & Christian Ponder: ESPN Reporter is Dating NFL QB

Samantha Steele, an ESPN college football sideline reporter/host, is dating Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder. The 2nd year QB confirmed the relationship on twitter after a reader asked him about it, Hot Clicks revealed this morning.

Steele, 26, is considered a rising star at ESPN, and after Erin Andrews left for Fox over the summer, Steele was selected to take her spot on ESPN Gameday. Ponder, 24, is having a nice early start to the season with the Vikings, who are 4-2 and one of the surprise teams in the NFL.

Ponder obviously has an eye for talent; we revealed his ex-girlfriend, budding model Kacie McDonnell, right before he was drafted. Is the relationship with Steele new? He sent her this innocuous tweet on October 2nd, but quickly deleted it.
