Gay In The NFL: Ex Player Wade Davis Tells His Story


Former NFL player Wade Davis sat down with SB Nation’s Amy K. Nelson to explain why he waited until he left he NFL to reveal he’s gay.

In the interview, Davis talked about his life as a closeted football player, then post-football, which includes his work with at-risk gay youth and also campaigning for President Obama.

Also, Davis recounted a night that he went to strip club with several teammates and spent $1500 dollars on strippers to make it appear that he wasn’t gay.

Davis was a defensive back for the Tennessee Titans, Seattle Seahawks and Washington Redskins and retired from the NFL seven years ago.
