I thought that I read he was offered 1 deal after all this for the vet minimum and he declined it based on the fact that he felt he was worth more. PFF had him rated as the #4 safety in 2012. I remembered wrong looking back, it was an article talking about how teams only had to offer him the vet minimum to acquire his skills. If you want to not believe any of it based me typing that wrong that's fine though, I will survive with whatever decision you or anyone else makes.
Perfect opportunity to come out? LOL, working real well for Michael Sam. People were looking for an excuse to make the guy undrafted and guess what... they found it, but it wasn't about what he could or could not do on the football field.
I will leave this alone, but to imply I am intentionally making things up is untrue. I'm sure we can all nit pick subtle details in many posts on here. Regardless, Think whatever you want, it is your right and I respect that, but there are always 2 sides to every story, take the teammates, that's fine with me.
Does anybody else think Sam came out of the closet to gain attention to himself?
Because his combine numbers say he's a 7th rd/UDFA guy.
