Bills legend Bruce Smith says their Super Bowl team had a gay player in the locker room

Bruce Smith is happy that Carl Nassib has come out and told the league he is gay. The former Buffalo Bills sack legend and Hall of Famer went on to tell TMZ Sports, that the Bills had a gay player in their locker room in the 90’s, but that was not their focus, their focus was on winning.

“We had a gay player in our locker room,” Smith says … “I think it was the mid to late 90s and I think we might have had 2 but that wasn’t what we were focused on.”

“We were focused on winning games and each and every person that was in that locker room contributing to the goal at hand which was winning football games. None of that other stuff mattered. This was about winning football games and trying to be a good person.”

Smith feels there will be a tremendous impact on the news from Nassib.

“Obviously, we like to see the inclusion part. We like to see folks that understand that the world is changing and you have to embrace those that may be a little bit different and it’s okay.”

“Judge me by my character and judge me by the way I treat people. If we show a little bit more love and compassion in the world, this will be a much better place.”
