In his NFL career, Wade Davis Jr. played for the Tennessee Titans, Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks.

He’s currently the CEO of the You Can Play Foundation. Jake sat down with Wade to talk about getting the call from Michael Sam that he wanted to come out of the closet, what it’s like playing in the NFL and why he felt safest in the locker rooms with his team mates.

Wade also talks about the transformations that came with coming out and what he would say to his dad, who still hasn’t acknowledged and accepted that his son is gay.

At the top of the show, Jake and Cait talk about Cait’s weekend with Oprah, their trip to the Cayman Islands, Jake’s unfortunate mishap at the massage parlour and more.
