Denard Robinson Would Have 'No Problem' With Gay Teammate

NFL prospect Denard Robinson - Gregory Shamus

Former Michigan QB and NFL prospect is latest to make inclusive statement

Michigan quarterback and current NFL prospect Denard Robinson was asked by the New York Times a couple questions about LGBT issues in a recent question and answer. Robinson didn't disappoint:

NYT: What did you think about the questions about sexual orientation at the combine?

Robinson: That's their business. I can't get into someone else's business.

NYT: Would you have a problem playing with a teammate who was gay?

Robinson: No I wouldn't. I don't have any problem with people being gay. That's their identity and I want everyone to be comfortable doing what they want to do.

Despite playing quarterback for Michigan, Robinson is labeled a wide receiver for the draft and participated as such at the NFL Combine. Projections have him being drafted anywhere from the second round to the sixth round.

Last year, Outsports was the first media outlet to ask a slew of new NFL rookies questions about potential gay teammates.
