Montreal Alouettes Sign Openly Gay Defensive End Michael Sam

CBS Detroit

MONTREAL (AP) — The Montreal Alouettes have signed defensive end Michael Sam, the first openly gay player drafted in the NFL.

The club says the free agent has agreed to a two-year deal.

Sam came out before last year’s draft. He was selected in the seventh round by the St. Louis Rams and cut in training camp. The Dallas Cowboys signed him to their practice squad but released him in October.

He is to be introduced at a news conference Tuesday in Montreal.
