Missouri Defensive Lineman Michael Sam Says He's Gay (Video)
Posted by Steve on February 10 2014
In a move that has the sports world shocked, Missouri defensive lineman and Associated Press' SEC Defensive Player of the Year Michael Sam said in an interview with ESPN's Outside the Lines that he is an "openly, proud gay man".  He said that he had told his teammates and coaches back in August.

"I understand how big this is. It's a big deal. No one has done this before. And it's kind of a nervous process, but I know what I want to be ... I want to be a football player in the NFL."

If all goes according to plan, Sam will be eligible for the NFL draft in May, meaning that if drafted, he could be the first openly gay NFL player.  This is a big deal.

Do you think that this will have an effect on Michael Sam's future as an NFL player?
