Template:No foot Roy Franklin Simmons (born November 8, 1956 in Savannah, Georgia) is an American football player who played for the National Football League. He played offensive lineman for the New York Giants and then with the Washington Redskins during Super Bowl XVIII in 1984. In 1992, he came out of the closet as gay on the Phil Donahue Show. In his autobiography, Out of Bounds (written with Damon DiMarco), he speaks of drug addiction, prostitution, and promiscuity. Around 1997, he learned that he was HIV-positive.

Only two other members of the NFL have ever revealed their homosexuality: David Kopay and Esera Tuaolo.
