Michael Sam: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Sam was waived by the Rams on Saturday, and while there has been speculation that he may join the practice squad, coach Jeff Fisher didn't give any indication that the team will bring Sam back.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Sam was on the cusp of becoming the first openly gay player to make an NFL roster, but will have to wait a little while longer. He had a solid preseason and may get another chance should an injury arise.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Sam is unlikely to get much work on the defensive line with the depth St. Louis has, so he has to make himself appear more versatile. He's impressed coaches so far this offseason, so if he can keep it up, he has a decent shot at making the team.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Sam had a fine career at Missouri, but he never showed a great deal of NFL-level skill, and his Combine workouts were very poor. He'll get a fair chance to make the St. Louis roster as a rotational end.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Sam, who was named the SEC Defensive Player of the Year this past season, recorded 11.5 sacks during his senior campaign at Missouri. At 6-2, 255, he lacks ideal size for a defensive end, but it's worth noting that the players that Kiper compared him to -- Chiefs OLB Justin Houston, Seahawks DE Cliff Avril and Colts OLB Robert Mathis -- have all been productive pass rushers at the NFL level. We think he's more Mark Anderson than he is Houston, Avril, or Mathis, however.
