Michael Sam at veteran’s combine

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Michael Sam was among 105 players who participated in the initial NFL veterans combine, seeking another chance to prove they can play in the league.

The first openly gay player drafted didn’t make it with the Rams last year, cut at the end of training camp. He landed on the Cowboys’ practice squad for a few weeks, then was released.
