Mike Freeman: Several NFL Players Almost Came Out As Gay
BLEACHER REPORT's Mike Freeman today writes under the header, "The Inside Story Of How The NFL's Plan For Its 1st Openly Gay Player Fell Apart." He writes an NFL player "was going to publicly say he was gay and then play in the NFL." Freeman's account is "based on interviews with approximately one dozen people, including team and league officials, current and former players, and gay-rights advocates." Sources "refused to identify the team or the player" (BLEACHERREPORT.com, 11/20).
