Michael Sam, first openly gay NFL player

Michael Sam has made history, becoming the first openly gay player on an NFL team, as he joins the St Louis Rams in the final stage of the draft.

Sam, a University of Missouri football player came out in an ESPN interview.

The NFL player has since said he hopes that he would soon be able to move on from the attention gathered, and be known for his athletic ability, not his sexuality.

  1. Benja. I want your readers to know one thing. Michael Sam was NOT drafter because his is gay. He is an incredible football player. He was the best defensive player in the Southeast Conference, the dominant college football conference in the USA. He took his school, Missouri, which was terrible in football and helped turn it into a national contender. He deserved to be drafted. He is simply an amazing athlete!
