Wade Davis, a former NFL player who came out after he retired, joins Current TV's John Fugelsang to react to NBA player Jason Collins, who has become the first active male athlete in any of the four major sports to come out as gay. “It’s been the craziest day I’ve experienced since I came out,” Davis says. “I think the media have been great. I think the fans have been great. … I actually spoke to [Collins] this morning and he said all of his teammates, from Paul Pierce to Baron Davis, have all been amazing.”
