Carl Nassib Has Announced He Is Gay During Pride Month

Carl Nassib has announced that he is gay. He becomes the first ever active gay player in the NFL. Nassib has announced this via IG, it was also reported by Adam Schefter via Twitter.

However, Carl Nassib has also posted more on this on his IG. Lindsay Jones, senior writer at The Athletic in their NFL deportment, has provided screenshots of his post on IG

Carl Nassib will be the first active gay player in the NFL. While Michael Sam was the first gay player drafted in the NFL in 2014. He had not played in any regular season games, dismissing him from being an active NFL player. 7 years later, we do have an openly gay player in the NFL. Nassib has played in the NFL for 5 years now. Since being drafted by the Browns in 2016, he has played in 73 total games for the Browns, the Buccaneers, and now currently for the Raiders. He has started in 37 of those games.

A truly special moment in the NFL where an active NFL player has came out as gay. A monumental moment in the NFL. This is amazing and a truly important Pride Month to see such a groundbreaking moment in an organization such as the NFL. Carl Nassib is under contract with the Las Vegas Raiders until 2022.
