Actor Eric Stonestreet predicts that one day, it's not going to take an act of courage for an openly gay person to play in the NFL."It's going to be considered common. It's not going to feel taboo, and people are not going to feel they need to be closeted or keep their sexuality a secret because of other people's opinions," Stonestreet told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

The "Modern Family" star, who plays a gay man on the popular ABC show, said, "Times are changing and Jason Collins, Michael Sam and those guys who have come out are most definitely having an impact with society."Sam came out as gay before this year's NFL draft. He was drafted in the seventh round by the St. Louis Rams. Collins, who played basketball for the Brooklyn Nets last season, is the first openly gay athlete to play in a professional league in North America.
