It’s unclear the total number of Nassib jerseys that have sold so far on Monday and Tuesday (we’re working on it) … but as the #1 jersey seller in America’s most popular sport, it’s safe to say A LOT of Nassib units have been moved in the last 24 hours!!
Of course, the support for Nassib since he made his announcement has been overwhelming … everybody from Saquon Barkley to Roger Goodell to even O.J. Simpson has praised the 28-year-old for coming forward.
In fact, the NFL was so moved by Nassib’s announcement and simultaneous charitable donation to The Trevor Project — an org. established to help prevent suicides in the LGBTQ community — it agreed Tuesday to match the pass rusher’s $100k.
As for Nassib’s head coach, Jon Gruden also threw his support behind his player Monday evening … telling the Las Vegas Review-Journal, “I learned a long time ago what makes a man different is what makes him great.”
Nassib — who’s in the middle of a 3-year, $25 MILLION deal with the Raiders — logged an interception, 2.5 sacks and 28 combined tackles in 14 games last season.
