Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib became the first active player in league history to come out that he is gay.
On Monday afternoon, Nassib made the announcement on his Instagram from his home in West Chester, Pennsylvania.
“I just wanted to take a quick moment to say that I’m gay,” Nassib said via Outsports.com. “I’ve been meaning to do this for a while now but finally feel comfortable getting it off my chest. I really have the best life, the best family, friends and job a guy can ask for.
