Deion & TraceyDeion Sanders and girlfriend, Tracey Edmonds made an appearance on the Arsenio Hall Show last night and the conversation quickly turned to, Michael Sam-the first openly-gay prospect to enter the NFL.

Sanders, having played for five different NFL teams was able to offer insight on the subject saying, “He’s not the first gay-player in the NFL; he’s the first one to come-out.  Every team I played on there was someone gay in the locker room.  If he can make plays-he can play the game.”

He went on to say, “he doesn’t condone nor condemn homosexuality”, but this is the time to show love and embrace him as family.

Deion and Tracey will be starring in their own reality show, “Deion’s Family Playbook” on OWN, debuting March 1st.  Will you be watching?
