PHILADELPHIA — Writing for CBS Sports, columnist Mike Freeman has revealed that NFL players say they know of a current player preparing to come out as gay.

“Based on interviews over the past several weeks with current and former players,” Freeman writes, “I’m told that a current gay NFL player is strongly considering coming out publicly within the next few months — and after doing so, the player would attempt to continue his career.”

Though a few players have come out after retiring, there has never been an active openly gay player, but Freeman believes that will soon change. Speaking to Freeman, veteran NFL star Scott Fujita of the Cleveland Browns said, “I honestly think the players of the NFL have been ready for an openly gay player for quite some time now.”
