NFL player Ryan Russell told both ESPN and Outsports on Aug. 29 that he is bisexual.
Per Outsports, he told ESPN: "My truth is that I'm a talented football player, a damn good writer, a loving son, an overbearing brother, a caring friend, a loyal lover and a bisexual man."
Russell is preparing to move in with his boyfriend, Corey O'Brien, as they launch a new YouTube channel together.
Over three seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Dallas Cowboys, Russell played in 23 games. The Cowboys drafted him of Purdue University in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft. The defensive end currently is not playing in the league ( as a free agent ), although he would like to.
