Big news out of the NFL today.

For the first time ever, an active NFL player has come out as gay.

NFL insider Adam Schefter passed along the news.

“Raiders DL Carl Nassib became the first active NFL player to announce he is gay. “What’s up people,” Nassib posted on IG. “I just wanted to take a quick moment to say that I’m gay. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while now but finally feel comfortable getting it off my chest.”“

It’ll be very interesting to see what kind of a response this draws and if more players will come out during the offseason.
