Former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Jeff Rohrer marrying his gay partner
Jeff Rohrer, who played for the Dallas Cowboys in the 1980s, is set to marry his partner on Sunday, according to Outsports and the New York Times. He will become the first known NFL player -- former or current -- to enter a same-sex marriage. "If I had told the Dallas Cowboys in the 1980s that I was gay, I would have been cut immediately," Rohrer, now a commercial producer in Los Angeles, said in an interview with the Times. "It was a different world back then, people didn't want to hear that."
