Will the First Out Pro Get Corporate Sponsors?

Bomani Jones joined me to talk about the possibility of sponsorships for the first out athlete in one of the big pro sports leagues

There's been a bunch of talk this week about a report saying an NFL player is strongly considering coming out in the next couple of months. It lead sports personality Bomani Jones to wonder aloud on Twitter if that athlete would be able to attract the all-powerful corporate-sponsorship dollars.

Bomani and I will talked what kind of pay day -- if any -- that athlete may be looking at, and whether those possible endorsement deals in any way put a cloud over someone's decision to come out.
