0830-michael-sam-getty-01The St. Louis Rams cut Michael Sam on Saturday, after making him the first openly gay player to be drafted by an NFL team back in May. 

Sam could still be picked up by another team. If he clears waivers, he can sign with any team and he could still end up with the Rams on their practice squad.

Speaking about the decision to cut Sam, Rams head coach Jeff Fisher told the media, "There was no distraction. Mike fit in very, very well, he was fun to be around. There was no issue there."

Things started to get really awkward the one time Michael Sam took a SHOWER with the Guys and his D!CK got HARD but they were no FEMALES in SIGHT.* Can we say pause then first to rush and go get your TOWELS.
You have to know those guys in that locker room are breathing a sigh of relief upon this news. However we need a resident spokesman to step up on behalf of us HETROS

This would not have even been news except they did not sign him due to his talent...but because he was gay. If he had not been gay, he would have never been signed.


Signing him was unfair to him...they just used him to make a politically correct point, and then discarded him.

It is about time a gay person is treated equally and not specially.

Talent not worth the hype. Glad he was treated like any other person with his talent. If you can't hang you get cut no matter who you are.

I am sure Michael finds bigots disgusting. So if you are allowed to disgust him with your hateful crap, he is allowed to disgust you with his love for his boyfriend.
Deal with it.

Anyway, he seems like a sweet guy. I'm rooting for him. I hope another team gives him a shot. Keep working for your dream Michael.
