Not that there is anything wrong with this but...
 
who do you think it is?


...CBSSports.com's Mike Freeman wrote Monday that he was told a current gay NFL player is strongly considering coming out publicly. The plan would be for the unnamed player to do so in the next few months, then carry on with his NFL career.

Freeman based the information on several interviews with current and former NFL players, but the reporter doesn't know who the player is. If the player does come out, it would be a landmark moment in U.S. professional team sports...

Gronk?
Vince Young?
Tommy Brady?
Brady Quinn?
kFc fan base?
Oakland fans, only when they are in prison?
100 other NFL players who don't want to be outed?

Its been said for years bellacheat and Richard Gere have been close friends. Nothing to see here.

McDman 03-25-2013 06:39 PM

It says he will attempt to play, probably a guy who is older.

illbroncsfn 03-25-2013 06:40 PM

Whoever it is will have a plethora of marketing opportunities...

Bigdawg26 03-25-2013 06:42 PM

Maybe T'eo wants to wait til he's drafted to come out!

Tombstone RJ 03-25-2013 06:50 PM

I'll believe it when I see the actual announcement...

I'd advise him to wait til he retires. Unless he is a superstar, then that changes things, but not by much.


:Broncos:

loborugger 03-25-2013 07:20 PM

Either come out or don't. Strongly considering sounds like a drama queen.

This has happened already in a couple sports. He needs to do it while playing. Helps if it's a respected vet. Like that rugby star real sports profiled this year

This is not the answer, because prison doesn't count.

I'm aware of the players who have come out.

I would suppose it depends on the city and organization he plays for as well as his status in football. A player outing themselves becomes an immediate media distraction. Every player on that team will be asked, "are you ok with...", you will have dumbass fans who will run their mouths and say some pretty vile things. Fanbases themselves will split. Imagine Tebowmania/circus x10. All because an athlete decided to let the public know he prefers men.

Good luck to him.

This sure sounds like Tebow's entire career.

Props to Yerner for pointing him out.

I highly doubt it. He's from hard core christian family and he's by the book good boy.

I always thought Jeff Garcia was gay.

cutthemdown 03-25-2013 11:46 PM

It's gotta be Jeff Garcia. Dating the hot girls to make it look like he was straight. The lisp. His great fashion sense and the fact he played in San Fran make him a good pick for the gay pool. I'd say like 2 or 3-1 odds.

you should probably learn how to read

Starting a gay / coming out of closet discussion with "not that there is anything wrong.." is akin to starting a conversation of race by saying I'm not racist or I have plenty of black/spanish/white... friends but.

just sayin

v2micca 03-26-2013 05:10 AM

Some friends and I were discussing this issue the other day and sadly came to the conclusion that if a top ten prospect heading into the week of the draft came out of the closet, he would probably end up falling out of the first round.

Rohirrim 03-26-2013 05:12 AM

Got to be a kicker.
