Amid Latest NFL Firestorm, Eagles ‘Backer Cool With a Gay Teammate

The NFL’s homosexuality wars are heating up! Suiting up for the pro-camp: Chrisssss Kluwe and Bran-don Ayanbadejo. And for the anti-gay marriage team: The still uncomfortable Chrises: Clemons and Culliver! This just in–the Eagles have sent at least on representative to the game. Linebacker Connor Barwin chimed in:

As a heterosexual man, I can’t speak to what it must feel like to be gay in the NFL. I don’t know what somebody goes through. I imagine its very hard to go through. So I would support that teammate no matter what.

G Philly has more on Barwin, including a good male genitalia pun. [G Philly]
