Are The Rams Now Stuck with Michael Sam?

by Jerry Bader

Well, if he turns out to be a superstar, they're not "stuck" with him. And he might. But the odds are long against it. A friend e-mailed during the show today that the Rams are likely now stuck with Sam if he's a bust; that cutting him will have the organization labeled as homophobic ( you know, the same organization that drafted him).

Jazz Shaw makes a compelling case for that argument. Of course, his performance on the field will tell whether he belongs in the NFL. But even if it's painfully obvious he didn't make the cut do to lack of skill that won't stop the Gay Mafia (Bill Maher's term, not mine) from blaming it on homophobia.
