After finding out that the St. Louis Rams released Michael Sam, there remained at least a glimmer of hope that he would either be claimed off of waivers and sign with a new NFL team or remain with the Rams as a member of the organization’s practice squad. Unfortunately, neither happened, and Sam is currently without an NFL offer with the season just two days away from kicking off on Thursday night. This does not mean that Sam will not sign with a different NFL team at some point this season, but it is extremely unlikely that he will be on any 53-man roster to begin the 2014 season. Yet, while he currently has no offers from the league in which he longs to play, Sam does have a couple of offers from other professional franchises.
Of course, Sam should avoid the temptation to accept either one.
