Sam Goes Unclaimed On Waivers
Sep. 01, 2014
(Undated) -- Michael Sam's dream of becoming the first openly gay player in the NFL is on hold for now. Sam went unclaimed on waivers after the Rams released him prior to Saturday's 53-man roster deadline. He is now free to sign with any team in the NFL, though he may ultimately wind up sitting out the year. Sam could also be signed to a team's practice squad, which would allow him to practice every week but not play in games.
