Is Mark Sanchez dating Victoria’s Secret model Kate Upton?Mark Sanchez was back on Page Six on Wednesday when the New York Post linked him to 19-year-old Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Upton.

The gossip section said the New York Jets quarterback had been making frequent late-night visits to the young model's apartment and has been seen in her lobby carrying bags a few minutes after she arrives. (And you thought he only badly telegraphs his passes!)

Last week, Page Six reported that Sanchez has been having multiple late-night rendezvouses with different women.

Upton's rep declined to comment to the Post on Upton's personal life. A rep for Sanchez didn't respond. One source tells the newspaper that the two are "just friends."

Sanchez dated former "Sopranos" actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler and was also linked to actress Hayden Panettiere. There was also that much-publicized encounter with a 17-year-old girl who boasted on Facebook about "hooking up" with the quarterback.

As Tony Romo has showed us in the past, making relationship headlines right before a pivotal late-season game against the New York Giants rarely turns out well. Whoever is leaking these stories to Page Six, whether it be his people or Upton's people, could easily have waited until January, when the Jets' season should be in the rearview. Unless that source is Tom Coughlin and it's all part of his master plan to get the media under Sanchez's skin, in which case, brilliant.
