Nine NFL players have lent their names to a line of Gay Pride shirts being sold by the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) in support of Athlete Ally, a group working to end homophobia in sports.

“I am extremely proud to be a part of this collaboration between Athlete Ally and the NFLPA's One Team Shop to raise awareness both of Pride month and the issue of tolerance and respect within the NFL itself,” Chris Kluwe, punter for the Oakland Raiders, said in a statement. “As players, we are role models to a wide variety of people, and this is a great way to send a message of empathy to those who love and watch the game.”

Hudson Taylor, the founder and executive director of Athlete Ally, added: “Athlete Ally is a proud partner in this effort as the NFLPA makes clear to all its players that the union supports and welcomes them, regardless of sexual orientation, and to all LGBT fans that they are respected.”

The One Team Pride Shirts cost $24.99 at the NFLPA's online store.

Each shirt includes the option to add the jersey number of the following players: Brendon Ayanbadejo, Connor Barwin, Scott Fujita, Steve Gleason, Chris Gocong, Chris Kluwe, Donte Stallworth, Terrell Suggs and Eric Winston.

“I'm pretty stoked that people can buy something with my number on it,” Kluwe added.
