Manly man on the field is all that counts.

Even with the NFL draft coming up in a couple of months, Missouri defensive end Michael Sam came out over the weekend and announced that he is gay. With the announcement, Sam became the first openly gay man hoping for a career in the NFL.
 
Sam was named the defensive player of the year and according to most mock drafts he is expected to go between the third and sixth round of the draft. We are going to have to wait and see if his announcement lowers his draft status.
 
It shouldn’t, but there are still a lot of homophobic people out there and I am sure some of them are NFL general managers and coaches who would not want an openly gay man on their roster.
 
What a player’s sexual preference is should not even be considered, how he plays on the field should be the top consideration.
 
We shall see.
