The big news in the NFL this week was Las Vegas Raiders defensive lineman Carl Nassib announcing he was gay on social media. How have the league and Nassib’s fellow players reacted to his coming out?
Other topics for our WISE Sports Radio football segment: Tim Tebow isn’t welcomed into the NFL tight end club just yet, Eli Manning’s new role with the New York Giants, and what opting out of the 2021 season due to COVID-19 concerns will cost players.
Is it too optimistic to believe Nassib’s coming out didn’t receive as much national attention as it could have because more people are comfortable with the idea? I’ve seen some sentiment that not calling attention to it prevents it from being a story too. Regardless, Nassib’s done a good thing that hopefully helps others, which was his intention.
