Eva Longoria has split with NY Jets player, Mark Sanchez.

Eva Longoria has ended another relationship with a pro athlete. According to reports, the former "Desperate Housewives" star has called it quits with New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez. The 25-year-old NFL star's rep confirmed the split with the 37-year-old actress. "Mark adores and respects Eva," said the rep. "It really was about scheduling more than anything else. They will remain close friends." Eva only recently confirmed the relationship with Mark, who has had a number of high profile romances in his young life. Apparently, the split was caused by differences in their lifestyles. Of course, there is no reason to think that Mark won't land on his feet. Being a quarterback in the New York market, he should have plenty of chances to land another famous face before long. Mark is just one of many New York athletes known for dating stars. Here are a few of the current New York stars that have a reputation in the celebrity dating world.

Derek Jeter

As the captain of the New York Yankees, Derek is arguably the biggest superstar athlete in the world. Not surprisingly, that has allowed him to date some of the biggest stars in the world. Jordana Brewster, Minka Kelly, Mariah Carey, Vanessa Minnillo, and Jessica Biel are just some of the ladies that he has been linked with over the years. Derek is generally as quiet as possible when it comes to his personal life, but his three-year relationship with Minka was one of his most talked about romances. The two called it quits a year ago, and the baseball star has been relatively quiet ever since then.

Alex Rodriguez

Alex might have struggled for the Yankees in the playoffs in 2012, but he is still among the best when it comes to famous ex-girlfriends. Shortly after the star divorced his wife, he was dating Oscar-nominated actress Kate Hudson. After that romance fizzled, he struck up a romance with Cameron Diaz. The actress was infamously seen feeding Alex popcorn during the Super Bowl. Alex, who was also linked with pop queen Madonna, clearly has a thing for famous blondes. He is currently dating former WWE diva Torrie Wilson.

Kris Humphries

Kris might be more famous for his love life than he is for his basketball life. The Brooklyn Nets player was married to reality star Kim Kardashian for about two months in 2011, and most of the wedding preparation was captured on her show. Since the marriage ended, many have wondered if the whole thing was just a publicity stunt. Meanwhile, the two have engaged in a bitter war of words over the last year. Both have bickered so much about the short marriage that is almost impossible to know what really happened during the 72-day union.
