Seattle Seahawks defensive end Chris Clemons believes a rumored gay NFL player should remain closeted.

CBS Sports earlier this month speculated on the possibility of a gay professional football player who is considering making his sexual orientation public.

“Based on interviews over the past several weeks with current and former players, I'm told that a current gay NFL player is strongly considering coming out publicly within the next few months – and after doing so, the player would attempt to continue his career,” wrote Mike Freeman.

“Who on Gods earth is this person saying he's coming out of the closet in the NFL?” Clemons tweeted on Tuesday.

When @Jack_Humphreys4 responded with the question, “So are you against him coming out at all or because he waited to do it in the NFL?” Clemons replied: “I'm not against anyone but I think it's a selfish act. They just trying to make themselves bigger than the team.”

“Locker rooms need to get over their homophobia,” a follower replied.

“No one said anything about be a [sic] homophobic. I just think something's should be left at home,” Clemons messaged.
