Moon is "virtually certain" that he played with gay teammates.
I think I have played with a couple of players who have been gay. I know of a couple of players, who I won’t mention their names because they have not made it public yet. It really doesn’t bother me what your sexual preference is as along as you don’t bring in your sexual preferences to the locker room. I think that should be for homosexuals and heterosexuals. That’s a personal part of your life you should deal with in that way. As long as your coming to the football team and bringing a positive influence, that’s all that matters to me.
At one point in the late 1980s, Moon was the highest paid player in the National Football League. The legendary player was also the first modern African-American quarterback elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Outsports' Jim Buzinski speculates that the player referred to was Ernest Givins, "a star receiver with the Oilers in the mid-1990s and the subject of rumors back then even before the Internet took off."
