Looks Like We May Never See Michael Sam Play In The NFL After All

samweb23s-5-webThings looked so good for Michael Sam when he became the first openly gay football player drafted in the NFL.

The Rams picked him up, and there were endorsement deals, talk of TV shows, and national media attention all pointed at the young star player. And who could forget about that super hot boyfriend?

Sure, there was that whole Grindr photo leak, and that super awkward ESPN report on his showering habits, but things were still going great.

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.
