The heat came down on Chris Culliver after his anti-gay statements the other day. Now, he says he was just kidding around.
He also apologized to the city of San Francisco and added that he would welcome a gay teammate to the 49ers, a reversal of his remarks to Lange two days ago. San Francisco and the Bay Area are home to a large gay community.
49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said Thursday he spoke with Culliver about his comments but he wouldn't get into specifics of his conversation with the cornerback.
"There's not malice in his heart. He's not an ugly person. He's not a discriminatory person. I really believe that this is something that he'll learn and grow from," Harbaugh said.You can read his apology here. I need for him to go on TV and make an apology.
