Former Baltimore Ravens Star Brendon Ayanbadejo Thinks FOUR NFL Players Are Coming Out Soon

This is GREAT news!!

Former Ravens star, Brendon Ayanbadejo has always been very outspoken on equality and is an avid support of LGBT rights, so while a lot of talk has been going on that some NFL players might "come out" this year, he's speculating that at least four athletes are planning on revealing that they're gay.

The free agent said:

"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."

However, even though there's a lot of supporters for this movement, a couple of players believe that athletes should wait to announce that they're gay after they're career is over.

Former San Francisco 49ers player, Kwame Harris just came out, and once 49er wide receiver Chris Culliver caught wind of Harris' real identity, he said, "I don't do that. No, we don't got no gay people on the team."

And last month, the Seattle Seahawks defensive end Christopher Clemons noted that if a player announces his sexual preference, it would "immediately separate a locker room and divide a team."

We obviously DON'T agree with any of this madness, and neither does Ayanbadejo, but he is acknowledging the fact that it's gonna be tough when players finally do come out, he said:

"If they could share the backlash, it would be more positive. It's cool. It's exciting. The NFL and organizations are already being proactive and open if a player does it and if something negative happens. We'll see what happens."

Everyone in the world can't be the same, so we would hope that the NFL supports their athletes' decisions.

After all, no one should EVER have to suffer with their identity just because others don't think it's right!!
