MEET THE BLACK TIM TEBOW: The NY Giants’ Amukamara Devout Catholic, virgin, doesn’t drink

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Tim Tebow is long gone from this town.

He was released by the Jets on April 29 and is now nothing more than an afterthought in New York.

But Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara is now being compared to Tebow, who was released by the Patriots on Aug. 31.

The comparison doesn’t have to do with their play on the field, but rather their actions off the field.

Big Blue’s first-round draft pick in 2011 told Muscle and Fitness that he never drinks alcohol, and is committed to staying celibate.

With that has come a nickname.

“Yeah, some people call me the black Tim Tebow,” the 24-year-old told the magazine. “I am a virgin. I’m not ashamed to say that.”

The Super Bowl XLVI champion is engaged, and he met his fiancee when he was out dancing at SL in the Meatpacking District – although it took some encouragement from his peers.

    Tim Tebow has a lot of fans. I believe when he first started in the NFL his jersey had more sells than any other jersey.
