But, Ian interview with Oprah Winfrey, which airs this weekend Sam revealed their are a few other gay players in the league. 

"Very few reached out to me and pretty much just told me their gratitude and how thankful they were that I had the courage [to come out publicly]," 
"They wished that they had the courage to come out."
"Gay men in the NFL reached out to you and called you?" Oprah says.
"Yes," Sam says. "[They] just showed their respect and admired my courage… It was very good."
