Michael Sam drafted by St. Louis Rams, NFL's first openly gay player

Posted May 12th, 2014 @ 7:31am

Michael Sam from Missouri was selected with the 249th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft by the St. Louis Rams becoming the first openly gay player in the NFL. 

He gave his boyfriend a kiss on ESPN when his name was announced... 

Gotta check the spelling when sending out a tweet that you know is going to be seen around the world...haha

Don Jones, a defensive back from Miami, was fined and suspended by the team after tweeting out OMG and HORRIBLE after Michael Sam was drafted. He's since apologized for the tweets.
