With the interest of Emory University's sports marketing program, the social media site twitter has helped engage in a particular study as to which NFL markets would embrace Michael Sam as a member of their community.

The study looked at various tweets with "Michael Sam" in them, and then determined whether they were favorable or not.

The No. 1 market the study states would embrace Sam is New York. The place that ranked last was Nashville, home of the Tennessee Titans.

Rounding out the top 10 of favorable destinations for Sam based on the study, in order are St. Louis, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Kansas City, Washington, Philadelphia, Tampa and Seattle.

Following Nashville on the other side of the spectrum, in order, are Oakland, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, San Diego, Jacksonville and Cleveland.
