Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck says he would be okay if a teammate came out gay.

Speaking to CNN in London, Luck, 23, said he would hope the NFL would welcome a gay player.

“I mean it's the 21st Century,” Luck said.

“And I know I would have absolutely no problem with it. I hope no one would treat him any differently than any straight player. You know, no special treatment, he's another guy.”

“It's not our business, you know [the] sexual preference of people. So, you know, I hope if someone is thinking about it, that they do come out as gay and are a professional football player and it makes them happy and it makes their life easier then I think they should do it.”

Luck added that he would be disappointed if teammates reacted negatively.

“If it does come, I mean, I'd be disappointed if there was a negative reaction among players,” he said.
