VIDEO: Former NFL player Drew Bledsoe talks openly gay football players

Former NFL quarterback Drew Bledsoe said everything will "be fine" for an openly gay professional football player. While being interviewed on HuffPostLive, Bledsoe said, "In talking to guys that are playing now and guys that I played with, it's a far bigger story in the media than it is with any of the guys that are playing."

Bledsoe said he didn't know if he ever had any gay teammates, but said that there were "a few over time" in the NFL. Watch the video below:
