Defensive end Michael Sam is now a member of the Dallas Cowboys' practice squad.  Sam recorded eleven tackles and two and-a-half sacks in the preseason for the St. Louis Rams, but was unable to earn a spot on a deep and talented defensive line. 

Sam was drafted by the Rams in the seventh round of this year's NFL Draft, making him the first openly gay player in NFL history.
