Baldwin, Kelce among 14 Pro Bowlers who would welcome openly gay teammate

While there are no openly gay players in the NFL currently, an 18-person survey conducted by Out Sports at the Pro Bowl says that one would be welcomed by most of the league's rosters.

Jeremy Brenner of Out Sports asked 18 players during last week's Pro Bowl practices in Orlando about the infamous shooting at the local Pulse nightclub, LGBT issues, and the prospect of having a gay teammate.

Fourteen replied in supportive fashion:

Seattle Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce

Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis, tight end Greg Olsen, and fullback Mike Tolbert

Green Bay Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

Tennessee Titans running back DeMarco Murray

Cleveland Browns left tackle Joe Thomas

Minnesota Vikings safety Harrison Smith

Chicago Bears running back Jordan Howard

New York Jets defensive end Leonard Williams

Los Angeles Chargers cornerback Casey Hayward

Detroit Lions kicker Matt Prater

Miami Dolphins cornerback Walt Aikens

Four players declined to answer the question.

Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith and Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner offered no comment.

Oakland Raiders punter Marquette King said he doesn't pay attention to world events and only watches cartoons.

Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles claimed to not know what LGBT meant.

While Kelce said he would be supportive of an openly gay teammate, he also admitted he had never heard of the Pulse nightclub shooting that killed 49 people.
