Things looked so good for Michael Sam when he became the first openly gay football player drafted in the NFL.
Except then the Rams cut him, and he lost his spot on the 53-man roster to fellow rookie Ethan Westbrooks, “one of nine defensive linemen the Rams kept.”
But no worry, Michael quickly signed on with the Cowboys, telling the Daily Mail, “I’m just looking forward to being a Cowboy, my focus is on making the team.”
Well we’re sorry to report he did not make the team, after all. After spending the first seven weeks of the season on the Cowboy’s 10-man practice squad, they’ve decided to drop him to make way for linebacker Troy Davis, a second-year pro from Central Florida.
On the bright side, now he’s free to explore reality television with Oprah again. Assuming, of course, she’ll still take his call.
