NFL player and Washington Redskins star quarterback Robert Griffin III covers GQ’s September 2013 issue. In his photo spread, the 2011 Heisman Trophy winner styles in upscale designers including Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, Polo Ralph Lauren, BLK DNM, Saturdays NYC, John Varvatos, Adidas, Tommy Hilfiger, Tom Ford, Calvin Klein, Gucci and more. For the cover story, Griffin III sat with writer Brendan Vaughan at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia for a candid interview. During the interview, Griffin III mentioned that he think there are “gay players” right now and they should come out.
On the growing sense an active NFL player will come out of the closet in the near future:
“Yeah, man. I think there are [gay players] right now, and if they’re looking for a window to just come out, I mean, now is the window. My view on it is, yes, I am a Christian, but to each his own. You do what you want to do. If some Christians want to look at being gay as a sin, then thinking about other women, committing adultery—or any of those other sins that are in the Bible—those are sins, too. And God looks at all of us the same way.”
