Yes, Oprah is producing a docu-series or whatever they're calling it to chronicle his time as the first openly gay NFL player.
While I can't say I blame him, there's no real guarantee that he'll make it in the NFL, he can't say "I just want to be looked at as Michael Sam the football player" and do a reality show. I can't imagine the Rams being very happy about it. And that is it with Tebow. I made that point last year. He has to be a better back up option than many of those in the NFL. But, if you have no plans to play your back-up, why invite the circus to town?
Anyway, my point was that, if he doesn't make it, the story will be because he's gay. Not because he wasn't one the Rams best options.
