Former Baltimore Ravens reserve linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo called on professional athletes Tuesday to stand up for marriage equality because he said it is "the right thing to do." Ayanbadejo took his support for gay marriage to South Florida, where his career started with Miami in 2003 and where he has lived for the past decade. "We are calling on everybody across all spectrums of sports," he told a news conference in Fort Lauderdale, where he was joined by the civil rights organization Equality Florida.
