Not One But Four Gay NFL Players to Come Out of the Closet?

Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo says the NFL is readying the field for four pro players to come out at once.

In an interview with the Baltimore Sun yesterday, just-ousted Ravens linebacker and outspoken gay-rights supporter Brendon Ayanbadejo hinted that the NFL is readying the field for not one but four NFL players to come out of the closet at the same time. He continues:

I think it will happen sooner than you think. … We’re in talks with a handful of players who are considering it. There are up to four players being talked to right now and they’re trying to be organized so they can come out on the same day together. It would make a major splash and take the pressure off one guy. It would be a monumental day if a handful or a few guys come out.

Of course, there would be backlash. If they could share the backlash, it would be more positive. It’s cool. It’s exciting. We’re in talks with a few guys who are considering it. The NFL and organizations are already being proactive and open if a player does it and if something negative happens. We’ll see what happens.

Can you imagine a dream team of gay NFLers? That would be major, major, major. Stay tuned for more.
