Years after Tim Tebow professed that he was a virgin, the Christian football star and television personality is being questioned about his thoughts concerning Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson's public vow of celibacy with his singer girlfriend Ciara Harris.
Tebow was stopped by a TMZ reporter at an airport recently, where he was questioned about advice he would give to the high-profile entertainers who are working to remain celibate.
"You're an advocate for saving yourself until marriage. I wanted to know if you have any advice for Russell Wilson?" a reporter asked Tebow in a video posted to TMZ on Monday. "You know he's dating Ciara, and he's getting a lot of criticism saying that it's hurting his career. But you know, they're saving themselves and they're not doing it to help their performance.

The 28-year-old SEC analyst said, "I just wish both of them and everybody all the luck, and God bless man."'
