I wish he hadn't made a big thing of his being gay, he is actually a good player.

I was really rooting for the guy. He played solid against D-list players during the preseason, which means he is trainable.

I also salute my team, the Rams, for giving this guy a shot. I hope he makes the practice squad in an already talented defense.

Sam isn't making the Rams' practice squad either, it appears. A lot of people have Sam jerseys for a team he won't be playing a down for.

Problem for Sam is the NFL doesn't develop talent much anymore and teams like guys who plug into their system. They also value potential over work ethic, which hurts guys like Sam (they can teach an athletic guy to have a good work ethic, can't exactly do the opposite).

Considering there are 1696 NFL players
and only 255 draftees he's lucky to have gotten this far. Theres always Canada.

High school players: 1,108,441

College players: 67,887

NFL players: 1,696

No team wants a distraction unless they're a super human player. He along with the progressive MSM didn't do himself a favor.

Sam didn't make the team b/c he's a 7th round draft pick to a team with better pass rushers than him.

"If Sam passes the physical, then the Cowboys will add him to their practice squad."

Headline is better than if it had been NO ONE WANTS TO SHOWER WITH THE GAY GUY ~ i don't know football, but was pulling for Sam. Signed to Cowboys practice squad? Well all right, then.
