Missouri All-American Michael Sam says he is gay, and the defensive end could become the first openly homosexual player in the NFL.
Sam told ESPN, The New York Times and Outsports that he came out to his teammates and coaches at Missouri in August.
The 255-pound Sam participated in the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., last month after leading the SEC with 11 1/2 sacks and 19 tackles for loss. He is projected to be a mid-round NFL draft pick.
