Michael Sam Not Added To Rams Practice Squad

Michael Sam remains without an NFL team two days after the league's first
openly gay active player was waived by the St. Louis Rams, who did not include
the defensive end on their practice squad. Sam, a seventh-round pick in this
year's draft who publicly declared his homosexuality prior to February's
scouting combine, was left off the 10-man squad that the Rams filled on
Monday. The 2013 SEC Defensive Player of the Year appeared to be the victim of
a numbers game, with the Rams already carrying five defensive ends on their
active roster and short on depth at other positions.
