Michael Sam Drafted by the Rams, First Openly Gay NFL Player!

Michael Sam has officially become the first openly gay player in the NFL after being drafted by the St. Louis Rams!

The 24-year-old football player was the 249th pick overall. He was originally expected to get drafted in an earlier round, but gave a disappointing performance at the NFL Scouting Combine a couple months ago.

“I wish you’d say, ‘Hey Michael Sam, how’s football going? How’s training going?’ I’d love for you to ask me that question,” Michael recently said at the scouting combine when asked about his sexual orientation (via Huffington Post). “But it is what it is. I just wish you guys would see me as Michael Sam the football player, instead of Michael Sam the gay football player.”
