NFL Great Deion Sanders Has Played With Gay Players, Supports Michael Sam

While making an appearance on Arsenio this week (yes, that’s still on), legendary former NFL player Deion Sanders admitted that — GASP! — he has played with gay players.

In fact, gays have been on every team that he’s played for.

While we could’ve done without the fact that Sanders claims to “neither condone nor condemn” gays and the fact that homosexuality is mentioned in comparison to drug and alcohol abusers, the interview is definitely supportive of newly out NFL hopeful Michael Sam.

The delivery was a bit awkward, but the message was clear: Michael Sam and the gays that will undoubtedly follow in the NFL have an ally in Deion Sanders.

We just can’t wait for the day when there are enough openly gay players in the NFL to have a team of their own.
