    They should pair him with a male dancer.

    It amazes me how everyone praises Michael Sam for being the first openly G a y NFL player yet everyone bashes Tim Tebow for being Christian

    I don’t like Michael Sam to be on this show , still thinking he should entirely focus on NFL, but, hey, if this is what he wants to do, I’m rooting for him.
    Best of luck to Michael.
    But still hoping this is just a rumor…

    Well I guess if they don’t want you in the NFL, you can always dance.
