Raiders DL Carl Nassib became the first openly gay NFL player.
It's a watershed announcement in the league's history. Nassib, 28, in a Monday video statement said he's gay, a revelation over which he's "agonized" for 15 years. Nassib's announcement comes seven years after LB Michael Sam -- a seventh round selection by the Rams -- came out as gay. Sam did not make the team, and never played a regular season snap. Other players have come out after their NFL careers, keeping their sexuality a secret for fear of ruining their careers. "I'm a pretty private person so I hope you guys know that I'm not doing this for attention," Nassib said. "I just think that representation and visibility are so important." Nassib's announcement elicited an overwhelmingly positive response from the team, the league, and journalists covering the NFL. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said he is “proud of Carl for courageously sharing his truth today. Representation matters.” Vegas DL Darius Stills and EDGE rusher Maxx Crosby voiced support for their teammate after his groundbreaking announcement. Nassib signed with the Raiders in 2020 after two seasons in Cleveland and two years in Tampa. He recorded 12.5 sacks during his two seasons with the Bucs. Last year, Nassib had 2.5 sacks in 14 games, five of which he started. Jun 22 9:44 am (EST)
