Carl Nassib has been receiving an outpouring of love after the Las Vegas Raiders defensive end announced Monday he was gay and made history as the first openly gay active NFL player.

Among the prominent voices who came out in support of the veteran NFL player was Michael Sam.

“Carl Nassib thank you for owning your truth and especially your donation to the @TrevorProject. LBGTQ people are more likely to commit suicide than heterosexuals. I hope and pray people will take note to this. Thank you again Carl and look forward to seeing you play on the field,” Sam tweeted.
