On the heels of CBSSports.com's report last week stating an NFL player is "strongly considering" coming out as gay, NFL Players Association president Domonique Foxworth revealed the union has been working hard to prepare players for the unavoidable announcement. "We've had quite a few meetings with a number of organizations to help educate our players," Foxworth told Glenn Clark this week on WNST-AM in Baltimore. "It's important that we educate our guys and be ready for this inevitability." Foxworth believes there are some gay players in the game today and that there have been for a while. He even went so far as to say, "there are probably gay players in the Hall of Fame." So the preparation Foxworth is spearheading is to ensure that nobody is shocked when the announcement comes from that player, or players.
