The claiming deadline for players waived yesterday was noon today.
So if Michael Sam had been picked up by another team after being cut by the Rams, he’d have heard by now.
Via Tom Pelissero of USA Today, unless someone put in a last-minute claim for the seventh-round pick, he’s a free agent at the moment, and able to sign with a practice squad.
Likely, he’d stay with the Rams, who gave him a chance this summer to make the team, despite having one of the league’s best and deepest defensive lines.
But even if he signs with another team’s practice squad, he’d be making history, as the first openly gay player on an NFL roster.
