ARE THE RAMS NOW ‘HOMOPHOBIC’: Michael Sam Released By St. Louis Rams

Uh, oh. Will the Rams be forced to be ‘re-educated’ by the Thought Police since they cut the first openly gay draftee? Check it out.

Michael Sam‘s NFL journey is temporarily on hold.

The St. Louis Rams released the seventh-round draft pick on Saturday, the team announced. The defensive end was one of the front office’s final cuts as the Rams trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit ahead of Saturday’s 4 p.m. ET deadline.

“I want to thank the entire Rams organization and the city of St. Louis for giving me this tremendous opportunity and allowing me to show I can play at this level,” Sam tweeted Saturday. “I look forward to continuing to build on the progress I made here toward a long and successful career.”

We expect Sam to clear waivers and join the team’s practice squad after putting together a preseason body of work that saw him make a consistent impact in the box score.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher called Sam’s release a “football decision” and said Saturday that he shared the news with the rookie on Friday night.

“He said, ‘Yes, sir,’ and he said, ‘I understand,'” Fisher told reporters. “He said, ‘Thanks for the opportunity,’ and I said, ‘Michael, I’m looking forward to visiting with you tomorrow.’ He goes, ‘I am, too.’ That’s really all that was said.”
