Today former NFL coach/current NFL analyst Tony Dungy had to issue a clarifying statement after an earlier quote he gave to the Tampa Tribune regarding the draft status of Michael Sam. Here’s what he said several weeks ago:
“I wouldn’t have taken him 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.”
Dungy didn’t clarify what those “things” were at the time, but we have a feeling that old NFL guys coming out of the woodwork to give their opinions would be one of them.
Today he issued a clarification that didn’t really clear things up at all.
