Former NFL pass rusher, Michael Sam, is currently out of a football job.
The former SEC Defensive Player of the Year had a short stint for the Montreal Alouettes in the Canadian Football League, but that didn’t last very long to say the least.
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 2/3

Sam was selected by the St. Louis Rams in the 7th round, but he wishes he wasn’t drafted at all.
Going to St. Louis was very hard for Sam, considering how stacked their defensive line is. From a pure talent standpoint, Sam is good enough to be on someone’s roster, but is he worth all of the distractions?
I don’t think so.
