| Filed under: ZportzHealthFootballNFLMichael Sam

Michael wants you to put him in, coach!

Looks like he's itching for that much-needed break to be over!

Michael Sam, who became known as the first openly gay football player in the NFL, says he's hoping to be back on the roster for the 2016 season!

The inspirational athlete announced on Twitter last month that he was leaving the league — temporarily — because of mental health reasons.

But it looks like he's ready and willing for the coach to put him back in! Unfortunately, this year's season JUST started, so it looks like he has a while to wait.

Not to mention, he has to get picked to play again.

However, the 25-year-old feels confident he can show the coaches he's worth signing — and totally focused on football — and has already fired his publicist and agent!

But since next season is still a ways off, Michael says, in the meantime, he's trying his hand at sportscasting, explaining:

"It's been a roller coaster. I've been trying to figure out what's next in my life. I've just come to a conclusion, as I take this break from football, I want to focus on my media training."

Do U think Michael will make the team in 2016? SOUND OFF in the comments!

While there's no exact reason for the split, sources close to the couple say they've apparently been on the rocks for the MONTHS despite tons of lovey dovey pics on Instagram that would suggest otherwise!

The couple first gained attention when they shared a smooch for the whole world to see after Michael became the first openly gay player to be drafted into the league!

The timing is a bit odd as Michael was noticeably absent from his new CFL team's training camp for almost a month, saying he had to leave for personal reasons!

Sounds like we finally know why!
