Gronk would accept gay teammate


New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski said that he would be accepting of a gay teammate.

"I got this question before, about a year ago, and I basically will say the same answer that I did a year ago," he said Wednesday in an interview with Stephen A. Smith and Ryan Ruocco on ESPN Radio New York, when asked how the Patriots locker room would receive an openly gay player. "You've got to accept the player. Everyone has their own ways to live their life and as long as he's respecting me, keeping distance, respecting myself, I'll respect him back.

"If he's being a great teammate and he's a guy on the field doing a great job, well then you've got nothing to complain about," Gronkowski continued. "He's another teammate and another friend."
