The NFL Network has posted an official video on its YouTube page that features two gay NFL players, Kyle Orton and Ryan Clark, as the team’s cheerleaders.
Orton, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner and the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft, and Clark, the No, 1 overall selection in the 2018 NFL draft are both in the NFL Network studio with their teammates for the video.
The video features Orton, who is the reigning NFL Offensive Player of the Year and a former three-time Pro Bowler, and his friend Clark, who also is a two-time NFL All-Pro and two- time Pro Boweler, giving an in-studio explanation about their pride.
In the video, Orton said, “I love being around gay people.
When you see them, you want to go out and play with them.”
Clark, who was the No 1 overall choice in the 2016 NFL draft and was selected by the Denver Broncos in the first round of the 2017 draft, said he was inspired by his teammate’s story, “It’s not just my story, it’s everybody’s story.
It’s not the NFL, it doesn’t matter if you’re white, gay, black, brown, whatever.
You can have any color, any race.
So when we saw Kyle and Ryan’s story on the NFL network, it inspired us.”
The video also features Ortons wife, Jada, who speaks about the love her husband has for the gay community.
“It really does change you,” Jada said in the video that was uploaded to the NFL’s YouTube channel.
“You’re able to see what you’re really capable of, you can be more of yourself.
You have to grow.
You’re not just going to be that guy who says he’s gay, but you’re also going to grow as a person and learn from your mistakes.
I’m not the only one who’s going to get that opportunity to grow up and be able to grow out of who he is.”
