Current Baltimore Ravens linebacker and former Bears' special teams star Brendon Ayanbadejo posted a video in support of same-sex marriage in Maryland. Scroll down to watch video:
The Maryland House of Delegates has a vote coming up on Friday which will determine if same-sex couples can marry. And Ayanbadejo, who has written about this subject before, is in favor.
This is newsworthy in the sense that pro athletes normally do not even discuss issues relating to gay or lesbians, especially in the world of pro football.
Look, right or wrong, it simply doesn't fit the macho image of tough, rugged football players.
Regardless of whether you agree or disagree with his stance on the issue, you have to admire Ayanbadejo's courage for speaking out.
