Hall of Famer Deion Sanders played with five different franchises during his 14-year career. He states there were gay players on every one of those rosters, and the locker room knew it.
Sanders made the comments while making an appearance on The Arsenio Hall Show. He said NFL draft prospect Michael Sam won't be the first gay player in the league's history, but rather the first one to play after making the information public.
The NFL Network analyst talked about how he feels the Sam situation is a chance for the league to follow through on the talk about how everybody is part of a family.
Sanders didn't take a stance on the issue of homosexuality itself, simply stating it was something he didn't "condone nor condemn." At the same time, he said the teams he played on looked out for gay teammates just like anybody else.
