There's talk in the sports world that a gay NFL player is ready to come out. CBS Sports reports that in the next few months, a current football player will come out publicly and will continue to play in the league after the announcement.
Free agent linebacker and gay marriage advocate Scott Fujita said he "honestly thinks the players of the NFL have been ready for an openly gay player for quite some time now." There has never been an openly gay man on the roster of any major league team. Some came out after they retired from professional sports.
