New York Jets players taunted backup quarterback Tim Tebow with chants of Lolo after his first day of organized team activities with the Jets.

Kevin Armstrong, a Jets beat writer for the New York Daily News, tweeted on Thursday, When Tebow entered locker room today, several Jets players started chanting, Lolo! Lolo!

The connection between Tebow and Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones is that both are virgins.

Tebow, a devout Christian, has publicly talked about still being a virgin and looking for someone who shares his values. His chastity has become a much-discussed topic and led AshleyMadison.com, a website known for encouraging cheating, to offer $1 million to anyone who can prove they had sex with Tebow.

But Tebow might be more interested in a woman like Jones -- at least if his Jets teammates have anything to do with it -- after she told HBO's Real Sports that she was still a virgin.

The 29-year-old hurdler told HBO that her commitment to staying a virgin until marriage has made it difficult for her to find a boyfriend.

It's just something, a gift that I want to give to my husband, Jones told HBO's Real Sports. But please, understand, this journey has been hard.

If there's virgins out there, I'm going to let them know, it's the hardest thing I've ever done in my life - harder than training for the Olympics, harder than graduating from college, has been to stay a virgin before marriage.

Jones' admission immediately led some to pair the two together, but it's unknown whether they have ever met.
