But it will be a little bit north of the United States.

 

Michael Sam, who made history as the first openly gay NFL player, was cut by the St. Louis Ram and Dallas Cowboys before finally finding a home in the Canadian Football League with the Montreal Alouettes. Says the team’s general manager:

 

 

“With the signing of Michael Sam, we have become a better organization today. Not only have we added an outstanding football player, we have added even a better person that brings dignity, character, and heart to our team.”

 

Michael Sam says:

 

“I cannot wait to put on the pads, get back on the field and work hard each and every day with my teammates to bring a Grey Cup to the great fans here in Montreal.”

 

Congratulations to Sam and let’s hope the third time is the charm.
