Rams Cut Michael Sam, First Openly Gay Player Drafted in N.F.L. -

“There’s no challenge with respect to Mike Sam,” Coach Fisher said, referring to a team that might want to pick up Sam. “He’s not about drawing attention to himself. He kept his head down and worked and you can’t ask anything more out of any player for that matter.”

According to ESPN, Sam had 11 tackles and three sacks during the preseason and had a team-high six tackles in the last preseason game.

In a series of tweets, Sam thanked the Rams for drafting him, for “allowing me to show I can play at this level,” and that he looked forward to building on the progress he felt he made “toward a long and successful career.”

“The most worthwhile things in life rarely come easy, this is a lesson I’ve always known,” Sam said. “The journey continues.”
