IMO GMs know of individual players who are gay (no currrent players in the NFL are out but GMs know a lot and it is statistically improbable there are no gay players in the NFL) and hopefully do not really give a damn if the guy can play

Whether or not he is gay is of course nobody's concern but his own - I was just saying in the world of top flight football (especially at a Catholic school given the Church's views on sexuality) he might have had a tremendous incentive to come up with a cover story
