Michael Sam can celebrate now that he has been drafted!
Michael Sam has been drafted by St. Louis Rams on Saturday, becoming the first openly gay player to be selected in the NFL Draft. Sam is expected to transition to outside linebacker in the NFL.
Sam was the first all-american college player on the University of Missouri to come out of the closet back in Febuary.
If he makes the team and plays for the Rams this fall he will become the first openly gay player in the NFL!
Earlier this week, Sam signed his first endorsement deal, partnering with Visa.
