Missouri QB James Franklin said he supports openly gay former teammate DE Michael Sam, but that he doesn't support homosexuality.
"I don't drink. I don't curse. I don't support [homosexuality] -- but it doesn't mean I don't accept Michael," Franklin said. He was asked if he was supportive of Sam after the edge rusher's announcement to the team in August. "I wouldn't say supportive, but accepting. A lot of people confuse supporting and accepting." The deeply-religious Franklin added that Sam "didn't make us feel uncomfortable in the locker room." That last quote is the most salient, as Sam has already proven to risk-averse NFL executives that he can co-exist peacefully with his teammates. Feb 11 - 8:15 PM
