9 NFL Players Who Make Being an Ally Look Oh, So Good

By: Michelle Garcia

Aaron Dobson, New England Patriots rookie wide receiver, says he'd be completely cool with having a gay teammate. "It's not affecting me," he said to Outsports. "I'm not like that, but I'm not going to judge him any different."

This guy looks like a prince, though, right? Like he's Eddie Murphy in Coming to America and will reveal that he's actually a prince who has been living undercover in the USA. 


Indianapolis Colts tight end Coby Fleener says he is probably more comfortable than others with having a gay player on the team. "Especially at Stanford and in the Bay Area, it’s something you deal with on a regular basis, more so than anywhere else in the United States," he said. "So I’m very comfortable with it, whereas in other areas it might not be the norm." With that, the great thing about Fleener is that he looks like a bro, but the guy's got a brain. Nothing wrong with that.


Miami Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan says it wouldn't matter whether any of his teammates are gay, because he has "a certain amount of respect and trust for everybody I line up there with." In general, the guy's a sharp dresser. Any NFL player who can do a bow tie is all right with us.
