Trust and believe - if Michael Sam had stayed in the closet, he would definitely be on an NFL roster right now. If he had not come out, more teams who were interested in him would have drafted him - and done so earlier than the 7th round. His draft stock dropped dramatically after coming out. He’s not just “a 7th round draft pick who got cut.” With three sacks in preseason he was tied for fourth in the league. No one decent sports writer believes he wasn’t “good enough.” At least one GM told sports writer Mike Freeman that there were teams interested in Sam but were afraid of the “distractions.” That’s homophobia.
