NFL's First Gay Star David Kopay on Michael Sam: I Would Have Done It Differently

The ex-San Francisco 49er star says he's from a different era than Michael Sam, who shared a televised draft day kiss with his boyfriend.

"I'm from a different age and a different school, and certainly wouldn't have conducted myself the way Michael reacted," says Kopay, adding the rookie player has every right to do want he wants. "He has every right to kiss his friend, you know, and be with his friend, and be the person he needs to be."
