Michael Sam stepping away from football, citing mental health:

Michael Sam, the first openly gay player drafted by an NFL team, is stepping away from football amid mental health concerns, he announced Friday on Twitter.

Sam made his CFL debut with the Montreal Alouettes on Aug. 7, becoming the first openly gay player to appear in a Canadian Football League game.

"The last 12 months have been very difficult for me, to the point where I became concerned with my mental health," Sam tweeted. "Because of this I am going to step away from the game at this time. I thank the Alouettes for this opportunity and hope to be back on the field soon. Thank you all for your understanding and support."

Sam won SEC Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2013 at Missouri, and was selected in the seventh round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the St. Louis Rams. Sam, 25, was released before the start of the regular season.

He joined the Dallas Cowboys' practice squad in September 2014 and was waived a month later.

A lot of hype and flash, and that is it. This guy is a sham IMO. Two thumbs down for all the hyperbole and no delivery what so ever. Adios amigo.

I think he was look more for his 15 minutes of fame then he was for playing in the NFL. When the NFL and the Rams wouldn't play along with the circus that came with him all the hype went away, the endorsements went away and the almost tv show & documentary.


and all I can say is THANK GOD!!!!!

I haven't followed this guy, but you two have a very interesting perspective. It seems to be shared by many, though. Personally, I have a hunch that he was not the ringmaster of the circus you mention. Even being from Missouri, I do not watch a lot of MU football, but I have seen enough to rule out the word 'sham'.

Don't get me wrong... I don't take anything away from him in on his college career. He was a very good college player, I just think he was more motivated to be the first openly gay player in the NFL then he was to actually play in the NFL. It was more about the spotlight and tv shows ect for him then it was about actually being the best NFL player he could be.

I will appreciate him more if the next gay player into the league meets no fanfare, no media and we can all get back on with our lives. The gay card and the race card are the two most annoying never-ending retarded shitshows ever.
