Sports Illustrated reports:
Raiders defensive lineman Carl Nassib now owns the top spot on the Fanatics’ jersey sales list over the last two days, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The surging popularity of Nassib’s No. 94 jersey comes after he became the NFL’s first openly gay active player Monday evening. Nassib made the announcement from his home in Pennsylvania.
