RAIDERS defensive lineman Carl Nassib announced that he is gay in an emotional video posted to Instagram on Monday.

This makes him the first active player in the NFL to be openly gay.

“I just want to take a quick moment to say that I’m gay,” Nassib, 28, said in a video posted to his Instagram account.

“Sadly, I have agonized over this moment for the last 15 years,” he wrote in the same post.

After his historic announcement, a clip of Nassib on HBO’s Hard Knocks was widely shared. In the short clip, he explained to teammates how compound interest works and tried to give them some financial advice.
