Former USC cornerback Terrell Thomas, who plays for the New York Giants, drew attention this week with his comments to the New York Post on Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to enter the NFL Draft.
“I don’t believe in it, I don’t respect it, but if that’s what you want to do, so be it,’’ Thomas said. “I can’t speak for the NFL or our team or the locker room, I just know what goes on and what type of situation it’s going to put a lot of guys in.”
“The biggest thing is the media, hearing that a bunch of 18 and 20 year olds can accept him, why can’t a bunch of grown men in an NFL locker room? To be honest with you, the culture’s different. It is a brotherhood unlike no other.”
