The cast of ABC’s new season of “Dancing with the Stars” is gradually surfacing. It has been reported that Michael Sam, the first openly-gay NFL Draft Pick has been one of the first cast members revealed.
In 2014, Sam was the 7th-round Draft Pick by the St. Louis Rams. He was released before the start of the season and was later picked up by the Dallas Cowboys to join their practice squad. He was then let go from the Cowboys in less than two months.
It’s good to know that Sam is doing what he can to keep himself visible, however I’m not sure if this is the best move for him right now. If he wants to focus on football and achieving recognition for being a great FOOTBALL player, than I think that’s what he should focus on–not Dancing with the Stars.
However, at the end of the day it’s about making money to take care of yourself and that’s exactly what he’s doing. Besides, who knows what types of doors this could open for him in the future.
Congrats to Michael Sam on his new journey in ballroom dancing!
