Former NFL player Wade Davis: Kids inspired me to come out

The issue of current and former gay football players has been in the news this week.

  • Former NFL player Wade Davis, who advised the NFL on Michael Sam, told People Magazine that young people who came out taught him to be fearless about the subject.
  • The Associated Press reported that Sam's admission of being gay and his acceptance in the league will likely increase the league's fan base among gays, talking to Human Rights Campaign spokesman Paul Guequierre.
