Dick Shiner

Washington Redskins, 1964

Conventional wisdom says that the NFL has never had an openly gay player. But how could this Dick Shiner have been more openly gay? Going by Dick Fellatio would have been way over-the-top.

Ty Coon

Brooklyn Dodgers, 1940

Coon, a guard, was selected in the 7th Round and played only 9 career games in one NFL season. So it is likely he made his fortune in something other than football.

Bernie Weiner

Brooklyn Dodgers, 1941

Selected in the 11th Round of the 1941 draft, Weiner played only 10 games in his NFL career. Chances are his career ended from health complications due to his Chlamydia.
