The National Football League Players Association is selling T-shirts via its online store with a gay pride theme, with proceeds going to Athlete Ally, a group fighting homophobia in sports.
The One Team Pride Shirts are available with the jersey number and name of the following current or former players: Brendon Ayanbadejo, Connor Barwin, Scott Fujita, Steve Gleason, Chris Gocong, Chris Kluwe, Donte' Stallworth, Terrell Suggs and Eric Winston. Alas, no player No. 69 is part of the group. The shirts cost $24.99.
NFL players lending use of their names for shirts adorned with rainbow colors is something that was hard to imagine a few short years ago.
