NFL Prospect Michael Sam Comes Out Just Months Before The Draft! Could Be First Openly Gay Player In League History!

michael same comes out before nfl draft

This. Is. HUGE!!!!

University of Missouri defensive end Michael Sam is just months away from fulfilling his dream of playing in the NFL! But before all of the preparation for the draft begins, he decided to drop a huge bombshell and announced he's gay!!

If you're wondering why this is such a big deal, it's because if he does get drafted in May, he'll be the FIRST openly gay player in league history, and he's definitely aware of that!

Michael says:

"I understand how big this is. It's a big deal. No one has done this before. And it's kind of a nervous process, but I know what I want to be…I want to be a football player in the NFL."

Michael came out to his teammates last August during training camp, and he says their support is one of the main reasons he was able to come out this weekend:

"They supported me from day one. I couldn't have better teammates… I'm telling you what: I wouldn't have the strength to do this today if I didn't know how much support they'd given me this past semester."

According to most rankings, Michael is one of the top 20 defensive ends heading into the draft, and he still has PLENTY of work to do before he officially makes it into the league!!

We can't even begin to say how excited we are at the thought of having the first openly gay player in the NFL and we wish Michael the best of luck heading into the draft!

    They're already saying he will drop significantly because of this. No one wants a fruit on their team. Just ask Chris Kluwe.

    Other straight guys know he's gay so there isn't any funny business going on. Guys are gernerally perverted sickos. Gay or straight. Girls usually can't punch a guy in the face for perverted actions, but another straight man could.

    The place where I work, seems to have all Lesbian, bi-sexual women for security. The few guys on security, don't really look gay, they're fat, balding, they just don't look gay, but they sure seem it. They have this thing if they go into our main space where we work, randomly, for 10, 20 minutes, every time we walk in there, we need to push the button on this thing, if it goes red, it's a random search. Green, you're free. It's always their discretion to do it, they don't have to, and it IS annoying especially when you'e busy. Always red, with this one guy, and if there's 2 or 3 of us, its usually only me that gets asked to do it. ONLY guys working back there too.

    One of the girls today, wasnt' even in there, asked me to, walking by, and I'e heard her talking about guys bodys in a magazine before, so I get annoyed but flattered, but it was green. I said to her "Wow, that's the first time I've seen that thing go green in the last 8 times I've done it…." She say's "Oh yeah, this one's good, but charles was tampering with the other one…."

    I thought… you fucking homo…. That's when I get homophobic. Rightfully so, I'd say.

    Good job, MIchael! F*ck the haters. They're just jealous because they aint good looking and fit like you.

    Anyway, more athletes especially football athletes SHOULD come out! Yes, i am talking about Tim Tebow.

    Re: Mad Dog – 'Fruit?' Come back to the future, Mad Dog. He could be on the receiving end of some major future tackles, so not sure if going public is such a good idea. Hetero players don't have press conferences to declare they're straight. I think it's nobody's business but theirs myself.
