Michael Sam says his priority is helping the Montreal Alouettes win, not making history as the first openly gay player in the Canadian Football League.
Michael Sam, who made history last year as the first openly gay player selected in the NFL draft, is heading to the Canadian Football League.
Alouettes general manager Jim Popp said Sam “is on our list of negotiations” after the NFL’s first openly gay player to be drafted was cut by the Rams over the weekend.
Former NFL star Chad Johnson is heading to the Canadian Football League. The 36-year-old receiver has signed a two-year contract with the Montreal Alouettes.
Nope, Tim Tebow still doesn’t have a job in the National Football League. But that doesn’t mean his services aren’t wanted in other capacities. The former Jets quarterback made an appearance on the All-Star Celebrity Apprentice finale on Sunday night.
In a desperate attempt to get the 25-year-old back in the league, Jaguars fans have filed a petition on the White House’s “We the People” website in an effort to get President Barack Obama to call Caldwell and demand that he agree to terms with Tebow.
“Now that it appears Mr. Tim Tebow’s career in the National Football League may be coming to an end, we at Legends Football League would like to extend him an offer to become our Quarterbacks Coach nationally,” LFL President Mitchell Mortaza told TMZ.
Take a quick jog around the Twitterverse and you’ll get the impression that finding a job — at least in the NFL — won’t be easy for the 25-year-old.
According to WFAN co-host Craig Carton, Tebow will be “lucky” to land in the CFL. Some on Twitter would agree.
