not that there's anything wrong with that.
Most NFL scouts view the All-American/All-SEC player, who is 6 '2 and 255-260 lbs, as too small as a DE and not quite agile enough to cover as an OLB, yet his physical attributes and explosive speed (4.92 40yd) could fit in nicely as a true pass rusher in the CFL.
A late 7th round pick by the Rams, (curiously tabbed a mid-rounder until publicly coming out) the odds of Sam as a positional player in the NFL appear remote, and IMO much better suited for the Canadian game by all accounts.
As well, the CFL would also set precedence as the first pro gridiron league with an openly gay athlete on the active roster, further invoking it's reputation as a league of inclusion and equality. :thup:
(i.e. Bernie Custis, Warren Moon, Johnny Bright, Chuck Ealey etc)
Question is, Would Michael Sam contemplate a career north of the border?
