Ex-NFL player comes out as gay

OutSports.com is reporting that Wade Davis, now 34 and a former player on the Washington Redskins football team, is gay.

Davis made the announcement, explaining why he felt he could not come out while on an active roster, here. He even talks about his boyfriend.

No active male player on an American team sport has ever come out, though members of the NBA, MLB and now NFL have come out after the fact.
