Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib made history in June by becoming the NFL's first openly gay active player on a roster.
While speaking with reporters Friday, Nassib admitted he was stunned by the massive worldwide reactions to his announcement and added his teammates have been supportive throughout the entire process.
"I was definitely surprised by the big reaction. It was incredible. I thought nobody would care," Nassib explained, per Myles Simmons of Pro Football Talk. "But, it was just such a good feeling to have all the support. I was glad to have all the support. I was glad to do my part to help bring visibility and representation to my community."
