Former NFL Head Coach Tony Dungy is clarifying on some recent comments he made about St Louis Rams Defensive End Michael Sam...the league's 1st openly gay player.

Over the weekend, Dungy said if he were still coaching, he would not have drafted Sam because he "wouldn't want to deal with all of it."

After taking some heat for the comments, Dungy elaborated to the Tampa Tribune, saying Sam absolutely deserves a chance to play, but that he would be concerned with the media distraction of Sam's attempt to make the roster.
