It sounds like Patriots owner Robert Kraft wouldn’t have a problem drafting Michael Sam even if he’s gay.
“We’re about winning,” Kraft said. “And anyone who can come in here and help us win, I personally don’t care what their ethnic background is, their racial background, the gender preference. If they can help us win, and they’re about team first, then I’m happy to have him here.”
Kraft says he hasn’t spoken with head coach Bill Belichick about Sam.
“He and I have discussed this in the past,” Kraft said. “Anyone who can help us win.”
There you have it. Sam would clearly be welcomed in a Patriots locker room.
