    So, it's just a coincidence that he came out, when he did?

    Just like some are saying that's the only reason he got drafted? If he wasn't drafted he would gave gotten a cheap deal from someone to fill the preseason roster.

    I guess that's why he was picked so early in the draft. Oh, wait...

    Maybe I should come out. Apparently it would get me somewhere.

    It depends on if someone wanted to employ you for the PR value.

    If he would have just played football and kept his personal business to himself, he would have been drafted earlier and made millions.

    Don't you think that someone would have picked him earlier for the cachet? I mean, look at all Tue teams falling all over themselves to draft him and get the gay guy to make all the liberals happy. But they all waited, because they didn't want to look too eager.

    There are very real questions about if he'll be able to play in the NFL. He got a flier based on his resume.

    Jadaveon Clowney must be super gay. Otherwise he never would have been #1 overall

    Even just one defensive star can do a ton for a team. I truly doubt his drafting had anything to do with him being openly gay. For my part, I wish him no better or worse than any other player. All that matters is his ability.

    How much are they going to pay me? I don't care as long as I get paid.
