Michael Sam was reportedly flown out to Dallas, Texas on Tuesday evening (September 2) to take a physical to join the Cowboys’ practice team, ESPN reports.
If the 24-year-old football player passes the physical, he will reportedly be offered a spot on the Dallas Cowboys’ practice squad.
“It’s been a roller coaster this past week but I’m happy where I’m at now,” Michael, who is looking to become the first openly homosexual NFL player in the league, said. “I’m just looking forward to being a Cowboy, my focus is on making the team.”
“It has all happened so quickly, but it’s exciting, I just wanna get back to playing football you know,” Michael said. “I haven’t had chance to speak to any of my family yet, not even my mom, but I will. I never followed the Cowboys growing up because I never had a team. I am a fan of defenses and Dallas need some help, that’s why I’m going.”
Michael was cut from the St. Louis Rams over the weekend.
