Fmr. player Kwame Harris speaks out on being gay in the NFL

There are lots of recent reports that a professional football player may be coming out in the coming weeks. There has never been an openly gay player in the NFL or on any major league sports team, for that matter.

But some - like former San Francisco 49er, Kwame Harris - have come out after leaving the league.

Harris has never spoken publicly about his sexuality - until today. He spoke only to his former teammate Coy Wire.

OutFront tonight: Former NFL Player Coy Wire.
