Not so good news for Michael Sam, the first openly-gay player to be drafted into the NFL. Sam released a statement earlier today. Here’s what he had to say:
I want to thank the entire Rams organization and the city of St. Louis for giving me this tremendous opportunity and allowing me to show I can play at this level. I look forward to continuing to build on the progress I made here toward a long and successful career.
The most worthwhile things in life rarely come easy, this is a lesson I’ve always known. The journey continues…
Although we were rooting for Sam to make it to the final roster, we are still very proud that that he made it as far as he did. What a great accomplishment! #TeamMIchaelSam
