New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora was asked about all the recent arrests that have involved NFL players.  He said that they’re ”ridiculous” and that veteran players need to set a better example.  He believes “more people should try to be like”  Jets quarterback Tim Tebow.

I think everyone agrees with Umenyiora, it’s time for these NFL players to grow up and set an example for the people who look up to them.  One way to do that is to try and emulate someone like Tebow.
