Former NFL Lineman Comes Out As Gay


Former New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs lineman Ryan O'Callaghan has come out as gay.  He originally did so several years ago to a handful if Chiefs employees.

Callaghan originally planned to commit suicide when his playing days were over, via Out Sports:

"In high school, football turned into a way to go to college," he explained. "In college football was a great cover for being gay. And then I saw the NFL mainly as a way to keep hiding my sexuality and stay alive."

I'm glad he was able to come out and find that the majority of people don't care.  I'm also glad he confirmed what we already know about locker room talk.

Now if he would just encourage his former QB at Cal to come out.
