Looks like he's back to being available.

The Dallas Cowboys signed defensive end Michael Sam to their 10-man practice squad on September 3rd, but they just decided to waive him. Michael is the first openly gay player in the NFL, and it's a shame he hasn't been able to find an official home yet!

michael sam doesnt make st louis rams practice squad

Nooo!!!

When we heard that Michael Sam had been cut from the St. Louis Rams’ roster, we were still hoping they’d keep him on their practice squad!

But it just wasn’t to be, despite all of the nice words that coach Jeff Fisher had to say.
