Yesterday I came across your comments regarding Michael Sam and how you would not have drafted him because you "wouldn't want to deal with all of it." Why would you not want your players to be themselves?
We have built this moment up for so long. The gay world and the sports world have played such vital roles in my life and I've been one of the many gay fans who have spent years craving a moment where our passions collide.
Sam's coming out will be the true litmus test of whether the NFL is indeed open and accepting of gay players. Should no team sign him, the NFL is sending the message that no time is the right time to be out in this sport.
