“I never really was attracted to anybody who I played with, so it’s sort of silly to even say that, but I wanted to avoid any chance of being outed so I would not shower with the rest of the team.”

The former NFL player also revealed that when it came to acting on his sexual desires, he would hook up with men who he thought were “straight in their real life, too,” adding, “They were all pretty closeted themselves.”

“I don’t think there was any man that was going to be coming out to get me because they would be outing themselves as well.

 “It wasn’t like a ton of men. It was like a few, and they never had my real name… That’s sort of how scared and secretive it all was.”

“I was suppressing my sexuality so hard that I was taking medication daily to deal with depression and anxiety, and that made me a paranoid freak.

“I didn’t trust a whole lot of people, and I was trying to do anything and everything I could to protect a secret.”
