In the past,  there were only female cheerleaders on the sidelines cheering for the NFL teams. For the first time in history, male cheerleaders will also be cheering along with the females. The two teams hiring the male cheerleaders are the Los Angeles Rams and the New Orleans Saints.

College sports have both male and female cheerleaders on their teams. Seeing people cheer on the sidelines is not uncommon in professional sports, but usually, men are only used for stunts. In college sports, male and female cheerleaders are more common. Cheerleading is an athletic sport and should be open to all genders.

Napoleon Jinnies and Quinton Peron are two of the cheerleaders recently hired by the Los Angeles Rams. It is amazing that male cheerleaders are cheering in the NFL. However, there are many people protesting. Jesse Hernandez, who is a cheerleader for the New Orleans Saints, blocks out all the mean comments and is confident he can do amazing work.   The Indianapolis Colts and the Baltimore Ravens have stuntmen,  but they do not dance like the cheerleaders do.

The average salary these men make is  $100,000 per season, which is about $6,250 per game.
