Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib says he has received "nothing but love and support" from his teammates after he came out as gay.

Nassib came out publicly on Instagram in June, saying he felt representation and visibility were important.

He said during the Raiders' training camp that coming out has taken a great weight off his shoulders. Nassib is the first active NFL player to come out as gay.
