Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib became the first active NFL player to come out as gay. The veteran made the announcement on Instagram while also announcing a $100,000 donation to The Trevor Project.
"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."

Good for Carl. I agree with him, hopefully we get to a point one day when it doesn't matter, but being the first active NFL player to come out is a pretty big deal.
