NFL: Cowboys Cut Sam From Practice Squad

According to an Associated Press release, Michael Sam, the first openly gay football player in the NFL (National Football League), will now be forced to wait for another team to give him the opportunity to be in one of the regular season NFL games. The Dallas Cowboys formally released rush end Sam from their practice squad yesterday as they gear up for some possible returning defensive reinforcements.

Sam signed on with the Texan team on September 3 just four days following his being cut by the St. Louis Rams at the end of the preseason. The Rams had culled the ex-Southeastern Conference defensive player of the year from Missouri near the close of the seventh round back in May. Sam was pick number 249 out of a total of 256.

Sam garnered a total of three sacks in the preseason with the Rams while mainly going up against opposing second- and third-stringers.  Days later he was with the Cowboys. Now, after seven weeks on the Cowboys practice squad, the Dallas team released Sam from the practice squad Tuesday, dropping the rush end as they prepare for the possible return of some potential defensive “reinforcements”.

Sam posted a twitter message online publicly thanking the Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones as well as his “friends, family, teammates, and fans for their support.” He concluded: “While this is disappointing, I will take the lessons I learned here in Dallas and continue to fight for an opportunity to prove that I can play every Sunday.”

In other NFL news, The Tampa Bay defensive end Da’Quan Bowers was suspended by the league for two games without pay. Bowers reportedly violated the NFL’s policy on “performance-enhancing substances.” He will be benched for Sunday’s home game against Minnesota and the November 2 game against The Browns in Cleveland, Ohio.
