Michael Sam is heading to Big D -- where he's reportedly going to be signed to the Dallas Cowboys' practice squad. 

Sam was cut by the Rams over the weekend despite having a monster preseason ... where he recorded 2.5 sacks. 

According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the Cowboys spent the day calling several players and gauging their reactions to signing Sam ... and apparently, the feedback came back positive. 

Sam will undergo a team physical Wednesday, says ESPN's Adam Schefter ... who says if things go well, the deal is all but done.

Of course they said positive things if any of them would of said something negative they would be getting suspended and fined. You can't voice your opinion anymore.

Wonder who's gay in the Dallas Cowboys management? Will he shower at "South Fork" like Bobby Ewing did?

He may feel like Bobby Ewing in that "Dallas" episode when he showers with the Cowboys -- simply a dream!

"monster preseason?" against 4th and 5th string players, just like him he performed in an average fashion. If you do some research on other 7th round picks, I'd guess most of them are not on practice squads or anything else. I think the league got on the phone and mandated some team put him on the nearly meaningless practice squad, at least for now, in order to blunt criticism that some team didn't sign him based on the affirmative action gay people now demand- cut a more deserving straight player and sign sam because gay people in the past had a hard time. frankly, i'm sick of gay people shoving their sexuality down everyone else's throats. Im sick of hearing about who michael sam likes to have sex with, and I never did care, but I'm forced to hear about it any time I go to a sports site. What ever happened to just keeping private things private and not forcing the rest of us to "tolerate" and celebrate every aspect of every other person's life, even those parts we don't give a crap about (like his sexual practices).
