It ain't over for Sam yet, he may have a suitor depending on a physical schedule for this Wednesday at Valley Ranch.  According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the openly gay defensive end drafted by the St. Louis Rams will come to Valley Ranch on Wednesday. If everything is in order, Dallas would add him to the practice squad.
Michael Sam was the SEC co-defensive player of the year at Missouri; who was selected by the St. Louis Rams with the 249th overall pick.  Sam made his case in preseason performance, coming up with 11 tackles and three sacks in limited action.  There was no surprise that Sam didn't make the 53-man roster because of the crowded front seven that St. Louis has.  It was the understanding Sam would clear waivers Sunday and sign back with St. Louis.  Monday rolled around and the Rams finalized their 10-player practice squad and Sam wasn't included.

Sam and Coach Fisher had a meeting but nothing was discuss but in the meantime Sam now has a team of interest in Dallas.  This may be a blessing in disguise.  Sam may have an opportunity to play in Dallas whose front seven is questionable and in need of a pass rush.  It also gives owner Jerry Jones the splash he has so desired to for.  He passed on Johnny Manziel which was a smart move because there wasn't a need at the quarterback position but if you want headlines.  Sam is your man!
