Monday was a historic day in the NFL.

That’s because Las Vegas Raiders DL Carl Nassib took to Instagram to announce that he was gay, becoming the first active NFL player to announce he was gay.

You can see Nassib’s announcement below, shared on Twitter by @SportsCenter:

Nassib, a former Penn State star, was chosen by the Cleveland Browns in the 2016 NFL Draft. He has played for the Browns, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Raiders in his career. In 2020, he played in 14 games, recording 28 tackles, 2.5 sacks, 5 pass breakups and 1 interception.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell issued a statement after Nassib broke the news:

So did Raiders owner Mark Davis:

Former Mizzou DL Michael Sam announced he was gay prior to the 2014 NFL Draft, becoming the first publicly gay person to be drafted in the NFL. However, he never played in a regular season game.
