    I seriously doubt he makes that team. Their defensive line is beyond sanity.

    What Do Arrests Data Really Say About NFL Players And Crime?



    The "National Felons League" is a product of media sensationalism, not facts.
    How do NFL players compare with their peers by income level? Saying that a very financially secure person is not as prone to crime as the average guy is not much of a complement.

    Report: Four teams liked Michael Sam if he want undrafted - CBSSports.com

    If the draft had finished without Michael Sam being selected, he would have had an NFL job within about five minutes. This idea that he was "only drafted because he is gay" is utterly stupid on every conceivable level.

    A lot of crime has to do with poverty, how does the NFL arrest rate compare with other adult males making in the top 1% of salaries?

    This story is a big yawn.
    He was SEC Co-Defensive Player of the Year.

    Oh I know plenty that do. I also know plenty that take it in the ass. But hey, we can't all be as enlightened as you. Honestly, you represent what is so repugnant about the so many Christians. The "our interpretation of morality is what is good for all others" attitude.

    The average career is but 3 years so it's impossible to compare really.

    He probably won't.
