Meet Amo, Johnathan Abram's new furry best friend

Johnathan Abram plays with a big dog mentality on the field, so it's no surprise he has one at home as well.

Abram made an appearance on Whistle Sports' newest episode of "Meet the Pets" to introduce his new furry friend, Amo, a 14-month old, South African Boerboel.

"I was looking for a big dog with a really great temperament and that's what I ended up getting," said Abram. "Amo is the exact same person as me, he doesn't really bother anybody, he just kind of does his own thing and lives in his own little world."

The Raiders safety joked with Whistle Sports about Amo's special skill set of being able to eat food exceptionally fast and never barking. Despite never barking, Amo has proven to Abram that he is a great guard dog around his friends if he feels his human companion is in danger.

When giving Amo an NFL player comparison, he said that he would be like former NFL nose tackle Vince Wilfork, who played 13 seasons in the NFL for the New England Patriots and the Houston Texans.

"Amo would be a nose guard," said Abram. "Super lazy, but big and just stout. Plug up the nose, he'd be like Vince Wilfork."

Abram also talked about his extensive sneaker collection, the biggest difference between college and the NFL, and the safeties he's modeled his game after the most.
