Rams reveal new practice squad and Michael Sam is not on it. For those who are unfamiliar with Michael’s story, he is the first openly gay male in the NFL. His sexuality was made to the public by Michael a few months ago. His coming out was bashed by some, but seemed to be accepted by his teammates. OBVIOUSLY NOT.
The Saint Louis Ram’s 10 player practice squad is filled but Michael Sam does not hold a seat. The team set its 53-man roster Saturday, keeping nine defensive lineman (five defensive ends.).
According to USA Today, Jeff Fisher, Rams head coach stated Saturday that,
”the team’s practice squad would in part be determined by which positions the team might be thin at on the active roster, strictly for practice purposes”
Fisher met with same in person on Sunday. Was the Rams decision to cut Michael Sam a good decision for the team or for more underlying reasons?
