MICHAEL SAM: “I’m Not In The NFL…Because I’m Gay”

Published on December 5, 2014

No it’s because you suck, no pun intended, and you cause too much drama. But go ahead and blame everything on homophobes.  It makes you look like a big man…not.

Michael Sam believes he’s not on a NFL roster because of the fact he’s openly gay — telling TMZ Sports he strongly believes he’s got the talent to play in the league.

Sam was at LAX this morning when he was asked if he thinks NFL teams are shying away from him because of his sexual orientation … or if it has to do with the level of talent he faced after college.

“I think I was the SEC Defensive Player of the Year last year … so I don’t think it had to do with talent.”
