Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara isn’t ashamed to say he’s a virgin and abstains from alcohol. In fact, he recently revealed in a magazine interview that some people call him “the black Tim Tebow.”
“Yeah, some people call me the black Tim Tebow,” the 24-year-old told Muscle and Fitness. “I am a virgin. I’m not ashamed to say that.”
Amukamara had to endure the NFL’s strict testing program for players who suffer concussions, so he was unable to practice most of the week.

To say that Brown has earned a permanent starting spot in the Giants’ secondary next year is a gross understatement. The man has been a virtual turnover machine since stepping in full time on October 7 against Cleveland.
