    IRVING, Texas – The Cowboys have decided to waive defensive end Michael Sam.

    The practice squad player who joined the team on Sept. 3, spent the first seven weeks of the season on the 10-man squad and never made it to the 53-man roster.

    Sam, the first openly-gay player in the NFL, was a seventh-round draft pick of the Rams. He spent all of the offseason and training camp with the St. Louis before being released and signed to the Cowboys' practice squad.

    The move opens a spot for linebacker Troy Davis, a second-year pro from Central Florida who worked out with the team on Monday.

    Orakpo is out for the season with the Redskins. Maybe they will sign him. Or maybe he just isn't good enough to be in the NFL.

    Bigotry! Homophobia! Racism!

    What other explanation can there be for a 7th-round draft choice getting cut?

    The Jets will sign him. That organization is more about creating a circus, than winning games. :snicker:

    Does he lose his $114,000 salary as a practice player after being cut?

    Or was that money guaranteed?

    And will his twinky mud shark boyfriend stay with him or find another sugar daddy?

    Not guaranteed. His twink bf is mobbed up which should have made Sam ineligible in the first place.

    Media whore Jerry Jones didn't get the attention they thought they would get from signing him?

    Aside from the white people in the backfield, that looks an awful lot like an NFL team would look in those uniforms.

    Two organizations that have to turn themselves into NFL teams with smart football people. The Jets and the Raiders. They have great fans and deserve more than what these org's have turned into.
