Michael Sam Officially Cut From Cowboys Practice Squad, He Will 'Fight For An Opportunity' to Stay in the Game
The 24-year-old defensive end rookie was waived from the team, which opened a spot for linebacker Troy Davis in the squad.
Michael was originally drafted to the St. Louis Rams in the NFL draft this past Spring, but was cut back in August.
“I want to thank the Jones family and the entire Cowboys organization for this opportunity, as well as my friends, family, teammates and fans for their support. While this is disappointing, I will take the lessons I learned here in Dallas and continue to fight for an opportunity to prove that I can play every Sunday,” Michael tweeted in response to the news.
