No. 23: Brendon Ayanbadejo defends gay rights
Sept. 7, 2012
The linebacker and special teams ace has been a gay rights proponent for a while, and don't ask him to shut up, thank you very much. Maryland Del. Emmett C. Burns Jr., a Baltimore County Democrat, found that out the hard way, when he sent Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti a letter urging him to shush Ayanbadejo. Burns later backed down, and Ayanbadejo became even more outspoken for the cause. Meanwhile, Maryland legalized gay marriage.
