Will anyone else come out of the closet?
Rick Reilly didn't approve this question. There's long been suspicion of "closet" athletes. Collins may not be the worst kept secret in the league. Many have jokingly pointed at Miami's photo-bombing PF Chris Bosh as an example of the "Trapped in the Closet" saga that permeates sports.
Remember A.C. Green? Until he told Ebony his story about being a virgin, there were plenty questioning his stance way before trending topics were even a thing. One thing's for sure: acceptance will be gradual, especially with players already on the defense. Hines Ward knocked down the possibility of an NFL coming out story, telling NBC Sports Radio: "I don't think football is ready. There's too many guys in the locker room and, you know, guys play around too much."
