The Rams just cut Michael Sam. He performed well in the preseason, but the Rams simply had too many defensive linemen:
The St. Louis Rams have released defensive end Michael Sam, the first openly gay player selected in the NFL draft.

Sam, a seventh-round draft choice, had been battling undrafted rookie Ethan Westbrooks for a final roster spot. Westbrooks was one of nine defensive linemen to make the team.

Sam thanked the Rams for the opportunity in a series of tweets after the team made the announcement.
I still expect him to play for some team this season.

One nice thing was that both the Rams and Sam were gracious about it.
