The Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is usually asked more questions about his injury or when he’ll return to play football. But the 2nd-year star recently opened up on a touchy topic around NFL locker rooms when he told GQ magazine that he feels the “window is now” for gay players.
“I think there are [gay players] right now, and if they’re looking for a window to just come out, I mean, now is the window,” said Griffin, who is recovering from offseason knee surgery. “My view on it is, yes, I am a Christian, but to each his own. You do what you want to do. If some Christians want to look at being gay as a sin, then thinking about other women, committing adultery–or any of those other sins that are in the Bible–those are sins, too. And God looks at all of us the same way.”
NBA veteran Jason Collins was the first active player from the four major U.S. sports to come out earlier this year. The Detroit Pistons were reportedly interested in signing Collins, who is a free agent.
