The PSA begins with O'Callaghan, Rohrer, Russell and Davis collectively saying: 'To all current players who are thinking of coming out, when you are ready, so are we.'

Then current NFL players, including Rob Gronkowski, DeAndre Hopkins, and Calais Campbell, express their support, saying, 'It takes all of us, and you deserve to be all you.'

Fourteen former NFL players have said they are gay or bisexual, according to Outsports.com.

NFL Executive Vice President Troy Vincent wrote an op-ed on the league's website as part of its 'It Takes All of Us' campaign, expressing his support for LGBTQ players considering coming out.

'There has never been a single active player that has come out,' Vincent writes, reflecting on his own experience as an NFL player. 'While I'm sure I've played with LGBTQ+ players -- highly skilled, athletic and effective at their jobs -- they did not come out. But they were my teammates and part of the larger NFL family.'

Vincent also cites surveys from GLAAD and the Trevor Project, saying up to 12 percent of respondents identified as LGBTQ+. He points out that there are 1,696 current players in the NFL.

'Anyone in the player community who may be considering coming out, know this,' Vincent writes. 'Just as I have done with family members and close friends, I am committed to serving as a conduit to help you through that journey -- either myself, in collaboration with my teammates at the league office, or through the many organizations with whom we partner on LGBTQ+ issues.'

The NFL launched a website featuring additional projects with GLAAD, the Trevor Project and other LGBTQ+ content scheduled for the remainder of October, which is also LGBTQ+ History Month.

The league also plans to have NFL Network talent wear purple for Spirit Day, October 15.

'We have no way of knowing if an active NFL player would choose to come out, or what they might experience,' Vincent writes at the end of his op-ed. 'What I do know is that I am committed to celebrate, support, and welcome them.'
