Wade Davis never played an NFL game, but he spent time on the Titans, Redskins, and Seahawks rosters hoping for a shot. He was a part of the NFL culture and a member of NFL locker rooms. He was also gay, though he hid that fact while he played.
Davis struggled over what kind of advice he’d give to a gay player who was contemplating coming out knowing that the reception would be controversial. He also shared a story about when he was warned by teammates not to be different, and how he went out to a strip club that night to make it rain and prove to his teammates he was one of the guys.
The video is very insightful and definitely worth watching.Google+
