RG3: Now Is the Time for a Gay NFL Player to Come Out

Redskins star Robert Griffin III told GQ that any gay players currently in the NFL should come out.



Washington Redskins star quarterback Robert Griffin III, or RG3, says now is the time for a gay player to come out in professional football.

"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," he said in an interview with GQ. "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 sins that are in the Bible — those are sins too. And God looks at all of us the same way."

Griffin, 23, is returning for his second season in the NFL after experiencing a devastating knee injury at the end of the last season in a game with the Seattle Seahawks.

This Monday the Redskins will face the Pittsburgh Steelers for the team's second preseason game.
