Guess What Team Might Be Picking Up Michael Sam [Details]
It looks like Michael Sam could be joining America’s Team aka The Dallas Cowboys.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Sam will be in Dallas tonight to take a physical, and if he passes he is likely to join the teams practice squad.
Sam was on course to becoming the first openly gay NFL player before he was cut by the St Luis Rams on Saturday.
Why the Cowboy? Well other than Owner Jerry Jones constant need for the spotlight; they need a pass rusher.
The Cowboys announced Tuesday that rookie defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence[broken foot], their second-round pick, has been placed on injured reserve with a designated to return tag. Which means after he recovers from surgery he will have to sit out at least 8 games.
Sam had 11 tackles and 3 sacks in 4 pre-season games.
Should be interesting having one of the most polarizing players today play for one of the most polarizing teams of all time.
