    Don't you think they would want the stunt to go into the season?

    Once again....NP exposes his mega-homophobia and hypocrisy for all to see. In one thread he claims the guy just wasn't good enough to play.....in the next he claims that he could play if he "kept his mouth shut" . Which is it NP?

    He got his chance, for football reasons alone, he wasn't quite good enough. I blame Obama.
    Its expected that he will clear waiivers and get signed to the practice squad (for much less $) where they can try to bulk him up to NFL size. He had a boatload of sacks in preseason but as we knew all along he was not big enough to work against 1st team lines.

    Actually this played out pretty much exactly how most people I saw comment on Sam said it would play out. I think your interpretation of the narrative is a little...slanted. He was undersized, slow, and lacked the strength to play ANY position in the NFL. Now...I dont know about what others said, but I said I would have passed on him for the same reason I would have passed on Manziel. No NFL team needs the side show.

    If he wants to play in the NFL, I think he has one option. Work out in the coming year with Tight End or Fullback coaches and switch to offense. No doubt he is athletic...he just cant play defense at an NFL level. If he can learn to run pass routes and catch balls, he would be a beast at TE.

    Situational pass rusher. Very quick. Just a little underweight.

    In 77 pass-rush snaps, Sam tallied three quarterback sacks, two quarterback hits and four quarterback hurries. That means he averaged a quarterback pressure once every 8.5 pass-rush snaps.

    During preseason, against 3rd and 4th string players trying to make a team. They tried to make him a special teams player (a defensive lineman playing special teams). It didnt work.

    Re: Michael Sam released by Rams

    Rams have one of deepest lines in nfl

    It was not the best team for him to try to catch on

    But...he has not put on film his ability to play in the pros

    I think he gets picked up in next few days....on a practice squad

    And they try to develop his talents

    I hope he makes it.....not because he is gay.....but because he has some talent, and genuinely seems like a guy you want to succeed
