Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross applauded Missouri NFL draft prospect Michael Sam.
Sam is set to become the first openly gay NFL player.
“Michael Sam’s announcement is a significant step in sports and I respect the choice that he made publicly," Ross said in a statement. "His announcement will have no bearing either way on our evaluation of him as a player. Dennis Hickey, Joe Philbin and I all agree on the same thing; we'll draft the best players that can help us win football games, have high character and contribute to the community. If he is a member of our organization, Michael will be welcomed here with open arms as part of our family."
