Out NFL draft Michael Sam fails to make any team
Michael Sam’s dreams of being the first openly gay NFL player have been squashed after St Louis Rams dropped the draft pick from their team and no other NFL team has picked up his option.
Despite failing to make the pick Sam took to Twitter to say he was down but not out.
The most worthwhile things in life rarely come easy, this is a lesson I've always known. The journey continues.— Michael Sam (@MichaelSamNFL) August 30, 2014
Sam’s boyfriend Vito Cammisano, also showed his support for Sam by tweeting a photo of the pair in their Missouri shirts.
The 7th-round draft pick, who plays defensive end, remains hopeful he may make the Rams Practice Squad.
