Carl Nassib's Jersey Becomes Top Seller After Coming Out as Gay

The day after Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib became the first active NFL player to come out as gay, his jersey became a hot top-seller.

The 28-year-old posted a video on his Instagram page making the announcement and pledged $100,000 to the Trevor Project, an organization that provides critical services to the LGBTQ+ community.

"They're an incredible organization, they're the No. 1 suicide-prevention service for LGBTQ youth in America. And they're truly doing incredible things. And I'm very excited to be a part of it, help in any way that I can and I'm really pumped to see what the future holds."

In support of Nassib, the NFL pledged to match his donation.
