Brendon Ayanbadejo, a fervent supporter of marriage equality and LGBT rights and who had been recently released by the Baltimore Ravens, indicated that more than one gay player in the National Football League will be coming out and soon. Following a report on CBSSports.com that a gay NFLer is “strongly considering” coming out, Ayanbadejo agreed. He told the Baltimore Sun, “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.”
