When Antrel Rolle was asked about teammate Prince Amukamara having his best start in three seasons, the Giants safety wasn't shy saying that he thinks Amukamara’s offseason marriage — and the bedroom activities that came with it — is the reason for the cornerback's improved play.
Amukamara, a devout Christian who said he had abstained from premarital sex, was married earlier this year. Rolle, via NJ.com, said that he doesn't think Amukamara's breakout season is a coincidence.
"There are a lot of things different about Prince. For one, he's married, so he's (enjoying some things that he wasn't experiencing before he's married). For a man, that could definitely help him out. For a man ... I'm just being honest ... it's helping him out. He walks around with a little more swagger, which is something that we need, which is something that we love," Rolle said.
"I think it all ties into one another, as far as him getting married, being able to [have sex]," Rolle said. "He's just developing more as a man and accepting challenges and being the dominant player that we need him to be that we know he's capable of."
Rolle also attributed Amukamara's new success to his on the field confidence as well.
"Prince is a guy that keeps everyone upbeat. He's a funny guy, but when he goes out there playing, you definitely see him being more aggressive, capitalizing on his opportunities and he's accepting challenges. He's winning those challenges."
In four games, Amukamara already has set a career high with two interceptions. He's on pace for 100 tackles.
And maybe break some sort of sack record on the side?
