If Michael Sam signs on a practice squad, it won’t be with the Rams.
At least not this week.
The Rams announced 10 signings to their practice squad, and none of them were the seventh-round pick vying to become the first openly gay player in the NFL.
The team signed linebacker Denicos Allen, wide receiver Emory Blake, safety Christian Bryant, defensive tackle Matt Conrath, safety Matt Daniels, quarterback Garrett Gilbert, tackle Sean Hooey, linebacker Kevin Reddick, wide receiver Justin Veltung and guard Brandon Washington.
Eight of those guys were in Rams camp, while Allen was with the Panthers and Reddick with the Saints.
So Sam’s quest for employment will continue, away from the team that knows him best.
