We guess making the NFL team first is more important!
"After careful consideration and discussion with the St. Louis Rams, The Untitled Michael Sam Project has been postponed, allowing Michael the best opportunity to achieve his dreams of making the team. OWN is about elevating and empowering people to achieve their best. It's clear that we, along with the world, recognize the opportunity that Michael has in this moment. We will continue to support him in his journey to earn a spot playing for the Rams."
Michael Sam's agent also had a say about the decision, commentating:
"After today's meeting with the Rams, we felt it is best to postpone the project. This will allow for Michael to have total focus on football, and will ensure no distractions to his teammates. Everybody involved remains committed to this project and understands its historical importance as well as its positive message."
Although we would have LOVED to see cameras following Michael Sam on this amazing journey of his — this decision makes the most sense!
The man who is breaking boundaries has enough pressure on him to make a professional football team — he doesn't need a whole bunch of cameras following his every move!
Especially since his spot on the team is not guaranteed!!!
Though we have a feeling he's primed to make the cut — knock on wood!!!
