Michael Sam's NFL journey isn't over yet.

The Dallas Cowboys plan to bring the free-agent defensive end in for a physical on Wednesday, a team source told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. If the rookie passes, Sam will be added to the team's practice squad.

The seventh-round pick of the Rams cleared waivers on Sunday after St. Louis released him during their roster reduction to 53 men. NFL Media columnist Michael Silver reported that coach Jeff Fisher "remains a fan" but the Rams needed practice help at other positions due to injury concerns.

The NFL's first openly gay player racked up 2.5 sacks this preseason and led the Rams with six tackles in Thursday night's preseason loss to the Miami Dolphins.

The Cowboys spent Tuesday calling their own players to gauge reaction to making Sam a Cowboy. With the Rams out of the picture, Dallas looms as a solid fit for last year's SEC Co-Defensive Player of the Year because of the team's 4-3 scheme and a desperate need for help on defense.







Jerry seems to love to have his name in the news lately. Saying Jimmy Johnson will never be in the ring of honor, publicly blaming the rest of his organization for making him miss Manziel, and now signing Michael Sam. Not saying it's a bad signing but it just doesn't surprise me lol.

It's a good pick up for the Cowboys. Their Defense sucks! He'll help them, if he gets promoted to the active roster. Their top draft pick hurt his foot and Brent just got suspended. They need all the help they can get. Plus, let them deal with the media circus that will come with signing him.

Be interesting to see where he ends up, if it happens. I think it's been proven there's no real media distraction to be had once the season got underway. He was a fairly similar prospect to Jeffcoat, and he's who I wanted on our PS had we not grabbed Jackson. Maybe he'll have to go the Cam Wake(Almost the exact same Height/Weight/Length) route and do the CFL first while tries to develop an NFL Physique/Technique. Hell Wake didn't even play in the CFL until 2 years after he failed to make it out of camp with the Giants. Way to early to close the book on this kid.

So he's done nothing whatsoever over his football career so far in your eyes except be gay?


Well one of the mediots at ESPN was talking like the Rams were the only team smart enough to pick this future HOFer because he was about to show the entire world so it does appear that he has seriously underachieved.
