NFL Stars Who've Come Out as Gay

Colton Underwood, one of the former Bachelors on ABC’s hit show, and a former NFL player, just game out as gay.

“For me, I’ve run from myself for a long time. I’ve hated myself for a long time. I’m gay and I came to terms with that earlier this year and have been processing it. The next step in all of this was sort of letting people know. It’s been a journey for sure,” Colton said on Good Morning America. “I’m emotional, but I’m emotional in such a happy and positive way. I’m like the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever been in my life and that means the world to me.”

There are a few other NFL players who have come out over the years.
