Dawkins
Okay, this is sure to bring out the Tim Tebow haters and admirers even more.   But free-agent safety Brian Dawkins, who played the last two years in Denver with Tebow, claimed in an interview with Alex Marvez and Jim Miller on Sirius XM NFL Radio, that the strict Christian attemtped to heal Dawkins injured neck.
“In our Bible study sessions when my neck was pretty bad and I’m hurting, he along with our chaplain and (Broncos director of player development) Jerry Butler laid hands and prayed on me pretty good,” Dawkins said. “They brought snot and tears to my eyes and all that type of good stuff with prayer.” “He really is a guy who walks what he says he walks.”
This isn’t entirely too surprising that this took place with Dawkins, either. Some other players may have no allowed Tebow Butler to do such a thing, but for all the violent and aggressive play that Dawkins has done on the field for the last 15 years, he himself is very religious as well. Him and Tebow developed a very tight bond while they were in Denver together. It is unknown of the prayer itself is what worked, Dawkins didn’t intimate one way or another if anything miraculous happened. But it is safe to say that he believes in Tebow almost has much he does in God. H/T FoxSports.com
