An unnamed teammate of Rams defensive end Michael Sam may have concerns about Sam’s reality show on Oprah’s network. The team itself, however, doesn’t share those concerns. Yet.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Rams intend to cooperate with Sam in a way that will make the entire situation — including reality show — work out for everyone.
It’s unknown whether the Rams knew about Sam’s plans for a reality show when drafting Sam. As best we can tell, the team wasn’t aware.
Obviously, the Rams are aware now. And they’re intent on finding a way to make the situation successful.
Part of that naturally will be finding a way to ensure that teammates who have issues with Sam’s reality show or anything else (including the team arguably giving Sam special treatment) express their views internally to the organization — and not anonymously to the media.
