We also asked Coach Dungy about Michael Sam.

He could make history as the first openly gay player in the National Football League.

But some question whether or not Sam will be drafted now.

Former Indianapolis Colts Head Coach Tony Dungy says his sexual orientation shouldn't matter, "The NFL has always been based on merit and I think that will continue to be the case whether it's Michael Sam and the issue of homosexuality or anything else. Guys who produce and play well will be welcome in the league."

Sam will be in Indiana next week. He'll be in Indianapolis taking part in the NFL scouting combine.
