Michael Sam has the blessing of The Playmaker ... 'cause NFL Hall of Famer Michael Irvin tells TMZ Sports he "loves" that the defensive end signed with his beloved Dallas Cowboys.

"I like Michael Sam, I love that he's with the Cowboys," Irvin told us in front of Craig's in West Hollywood Tuesday night. 

"He knows how to get to the quarterback and we're happy to see that. When you're trying to get players, and the Cowboys need players, that can get to the quarterback, you sign Michael Sam."

"And I'm happy with that."

As we previously reported, Sam inked a deal with Dallas Tuesday to join the practice squad ... just as soon as he completes a physical. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

America America is a strange place who claims to be one nation under God whom we have never seen but don't love people we see everyday if we are to ever return to a superpower we must become a Colorblind society like the apparel line www.Colorblindusa.spreadshirt.com and remember M.Sam is some body's child, family etc.

Since Dallas really is just a spectacle now, it makes sense...they won't make the playoffs but they will get attention which is really all that Jerry Jones cares about...he's a seventh round draft pick that should honestly head to Canada or the arena league...

Dallas needs new blood-and something to take the spotlight off of Jerry's screwups. Maybe now the team will have a chance

Truth    

Sams will never be anything in the NFL but a gay flag that some people wave. He will never be anything as a player.

As part of that physical, he should definitely take an AIDS test. Given that he's obviously engaging in perverted unnatural behavior, he is more likely to contract the virus. The anus was meant to expel waste, not take penis. Man, this guy is SICK! Hopefully he gets the help he so desperately needs.
