Free agent out NFL lineman Carl Nassib has reportedly signed a one-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He played three seasons with the Buccaneers before signing with the Las Vegas Raiders.Nassib made history last year when he became the first active NFL player to come out as gay.

The signing was first reported by Adam Schefter of ESPN.
