(WSCR) On Monday, Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio said that NFL teams want to know whether or not Manti Te’o is gay.
Florio said: “It’s just that they want to know what they’re getting. They want to know what issues they may be dealing with down the road.”
On Tuesday, former Bears quarterback Jim Miller told The McNeil and Spiegel Show that it’s naive to think certain religious NFL players will openly accept a gay teammate.
“There are some religions that just are not going to accept a gay individual in the locker room,” Miller said. “So, now, are you as an organization gonna bring that element into your locker room and think that everything is going to be hunky dory? … Last time I checked, whether it’s Christianity or Muslims or other religions that are out there, they’re just not going to accept it. That’s just not realistic for Mike Florio or any progressive or liberal to think that everything is going to be okay.”
