Ryan rocked a completely black ensemble complete with a black shirt and sweatpants while he sauntered with his other half.

The 27-year-old hung a pair of yellow electric sneakers on his feet and wore long black Nike socks.

Corey showed off his fit figure in a white tank top combined with blue shorts while he proudly walked beside his friend.

He was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in 2015 after a successful college career at Purdue in West Lafayette, Indiana.

A year later, he signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice team and did well enough to eventually promote the active roster.

He made seven starts in 2017, but he suffered a serious shoulder injury and was not redrawn. Outside the short training camp period with the Buffalo Bills, Russell has more or less been out of the NFL in the past two seasons.

He hopes to return to the competition, but only if he can be honest with & # 39; teammates, coaches, trainers, front-office executives and fans & # 39; about his real identity, he wrote in one piece ESPN.

Russell was worried that being bisexual might adversely affect his career, and those fears were almost reflected in 2016 when a & # 39; well-known blogger & # 39; threatened to expose him.

& # 39; If the blogger beat me, I was sure it would destroy my career, one that not only supported me, but my mother and grandfather, & Russell wrote. & # 39; He would eradicate a childhood dream that resulted from years of work and sacrifice.

& # 39; Withholding information is a form of deception & # 39 ;, he wrote. & # 39; And I want the next part of my career – and life – steeped in trust and honesty.

& # 39; Today I have two goals: return to the NFL and openly lead my life, & # 39; he went on. & # 39; I want to live my dream of playing the game I have worked on all my life, and be open about the person I have always been.

Good plan: he hopes to return to the competition, but only if he can be honest with & # 39; teammates, coaches, trainers, front-office executives and fans & # 39; about his real identity, he wrote in a piece for ESPN
