Earlier today I did a story on former Baltimore Ravens player Brendon Ayanbadejo, claiming part of the reason he may of been released this week was due in part to his stance on gay marriage. He is a strong supporter of the gay & lesbian community. You can read about that story ——–>HERE Coincidentally, I also did a story on funny man Terry Crews and his thoughts on gay NFL players coming out. Crews was an NFL player for 7 seasons. You can see that video —–>HERE. Now shortly after these stories posted, Ayanbadejo came out with claims that 4 current NFL players are seriously considering coming out of the closet together at the same time. Read more after the jump.


Ayanbadejo was quoted in the Baltimore Sun today with the following:

I think it will happen sooner than you think. We’re in talks with a handful of players who are considering it. There are up to four players being talked to right now and they’re trying to be organized so they can come out on the same day together. It would make a major splash and take the pressure off one guy. It would be a monumental day if a handful or a few guys come out.

This is a huge development in this story. All of a sudden we went from possibly one player coming out, to four. Whoever the players are it does make sense to do it together. They can support each other while also sharing in any backlash that may come as a result. This story will get bigger as time goes on.
