A week before NFL draft prospect Michael Sam said he was gay, Saints player Jonathan Vilma expressed his fear of showering near a teammate who was homosexual.

A day after Sam came out on Sunday, another current Saints players reacted in the complete opposite manner, saying, “I (can’t) care less about someone’s sexual preference. My check (is) still (going to) look the same.”

The Saints player who said another player’s sexual orientation wouldn’t affect him spoke on the condition of anonymity because he hadn’t been given permission by the team to talk to the media about the subject.
