49ers cornerback Chris Culliver apologized Thursday after making anti-gay comments during Super Bowl Media Day. But plenty of NFL players have already come out in support of gay rights.
Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo has been a vocal supporter of gay rights. Ahead of the Super Bowl this year, he announced he planned to use the game as a way to reach out to activists and supporters. Previously, his support of same-sex marriage in Maryland prompted politician Emmett C. Burns Jr. to write to the Ravens' owner asking him to silence Ayanbadejo.
