Osi Umenyiora Says NFL Players Should Be Like Tim Tebow

You don’t have to be like Tim Tebow to have common sense. I don’t want to be like Tim Tebow because he isn’t haven’t sex, but I know better than to drink and drive.

I know not to get into brawls at the club.

I know not to slap my mother.

Osi was in Nigeria for a week and came back with advice for NFL players who have got in trouble with the law.

“I think if more people would focus and try to be like him and carry themselves the way he does, I think this league could be better,” said Umenyiora, who was speaking at M&M’s World in Times Square.

“Coming from where I came from and seeing what I saw, all that poverty, people who have nothing, they would cut off both their legs to be given the opportunity that these people have. To be messing around like that is real unfortunate.”

“I know everybody likes to make fun of Tim Tebow, talk about him, but he sets an outstanding example,” Umenyiora said.

Tebow is a nice guy, but grown men shouldn’t need Tebow to know how to act right.

Just Smarten Up.
