index

Giants co-owner Steve Tisch joined a wave of support for Missouri defensive end Michael Sam, Conor Orr of the Newark Star Ledger reports.

The 2013 SEC defensive player of the year announced he was gay on Sunday, and is looking to become the first openly gay player in NFL history.

“Michael Sam is a gifted athlete and a courageous man,” Tisch said in a brief interview with TMZ.

Tisch said he hoped Sam’s announcement would not have any bearing on the upcoming draft.

“I hope any NFL team would not hesitate to draft Michael if he is right for their team,” he said, but opted not to reveal whether or not Sam was on the team’s short list.
