Jason Collins weighed in on Tony Dungy's remarks that Michael Sam would be a distraction for an NFL team.
Said Collins on TakePart Live:
"Personnel – coaches, owners – can look at my example in the NBA … and see that after two weeks back, it was about basketball. There were games, even a month after I was signed that reporters didn’t even ask me any questions. It will always go back to the sport because there are only so many ways they can write the article. There are only so many ways they can keep talking about LGBT issues when you’re a professional athlete because you’re a professional athlete first.”
Watch, AFTER THE JUMP…
