Trent Richardson and Robert Griffin III are among a dozen NFL players who say they would support a gay teammate.

Richardson, a running back for the Cleveland Browns, told gay sports blog at the NFLPA Rookie Premiere events in Los Angeles that sexual orientation for him was a non-issue.

“I never pay attention to it,” Richardson said. “They do what they do. I don't have a problem with them. As long as they're playing good football and contributing to the team, I don't have nothing to do with that. It is what it is. I don't have any problem with any sexuality or whatever they've got going on. That's them. That what they want to do. That's their life.”

In addition to saying he would support a gay teammate, 22-year-old Washington Redskins quarterback Griffin said he had a high school teammate who came out gay.

“When he came out, he stopped playing,” Griffin said. “He might have stopped playing because of the negative feedback he might have gotten from being that on the football team. So, I think that's probably why he ended up quitting.”

“Just because they're gay doesn't mean they're hitting on you,” he added.

Other NFL players, some retired, who said they would support a gay teammate include: Jesse Palmer, Nick Foles, Jevon Kearse, Eddie George, Antonio Pierce, Coby Fleener, LaMichael James, Doug Martin, T.J. Graham and Ahman Green. (A video report is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
