No, Bears linebacker Jack Sanborn is not dating Margot Robbie
No, Margot Robbie is not dating Jack Sanborn originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
Nope. Margot Robbie is not dating Bears rookie linebacker Jack Sanborn. Nor is she dating White Sox infielder Leury Garcia. You may have seen tweets or headlines about these local sports stars getting together with the A-list actress from Australia, but it’s really just a big goof.
According to Sports Illustrated, the joke started when a Blue Jays podcast tweeted out a fake report that pitcher Mitch White had started dating Robbie, and attributed it to TMZ. Of course no such TMZ report exists.
Before long, others followed suit making jokes with equally obscure athletes.

As is tradition on the Internet, as the joke continued it got more ridiculous.

For what it’s worth, Robbie has been married to Tom Ackerley since 2016.
