Kwame Harris, a former offensive lineman for the 49ers, confirmed last week that he is gay.
But Brendon Ayanbadejo - a special teams standout released this month by the Baltimore Ravens - says we should expect a lot more movement on this front in the near future.
"We're in talks with a handful of players who are considering [coming out]," Ayanbadejo tells The Baltimore Sun.
"There are up to four players being talked to right now and they're trying to be organized so they can come out on the same day together. It would make a major splash and take the pressure off one guy. It would be a monumental day if a handful or a few guys come out."
