Straight from the awkward department, former Indianapolis Colts head coach and Super Bowl champion Tony Dungy made some controversial remarks on Monday regarding Michael Sam – the NFL’s first openly gay player.
Dungy told the Tampa Times that he would not have drafted defensive end Michael Sam, who will garner a tremendous amount of attention in hopes of making the St. Louis Rams after the team made him a seventh round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft.
“I wouldn’t have taken him,’’ said former Bucs and Colts coach Tony Dungy, now an analyst for NBC. “Not because I don’t believe Michael Sam should have a chance to play, but I wouldn’t want to deal with all of it.
“It’s not going to be totally smooth … things will happen.’’
In other news, Dungy was the same guy who supported current Jets quarterback Michael Vick when he left prison and joined the Philadelphia Eagles.
Michael Vick out of prison or Michael Sam.
Not good, Tony…not good.
