Out Gay NFL Player Carl Nassib Signs with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

tweet from Greg Auman of The Athletic, Nassib, who was first drafted by the Cleveland Browns in 2016, signed a $1.035 million base salary, with a $152,500 signing bonus. His earnings will only count $1.05 million against the salary cap, making him a cheaper option than former Pro Bowler Jason Pierre-Paul, who is also a free agent after having played for the Bucs on a 2-year, $25 million contract and had a quiet season last year, only registering 31 tackles, 2.5 sacks and three tackles for a loss, according to Bleacher Report.Last year, Nassib appeared in 13 of 17 games for the Raiders, finishing the season with 21 tackles, 1.5 sacks and three tackles for a loss. Nassib previously played for the Bucs in 2018 and 2019, collecting 12.5 sacks and three forced fumbles in 29 appearances under defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, who confirmed that Nassib had signed with the team.“He brings a lot of energy, a lot of toughness,” Bowles said in a press conference on Tuesday.
