A seventh-round pick should have never gotten this much attention in the first place.  Now that the pressure is off him and the Rams he'll get picked up on waivers and be fine.  The Jags, Bucs and the Cowgirls all need some depth on the line.

Or $6,000 a week minimum for the practice squad.  Not a bad living at all.


Thanks bro, but Mike played very well and he deserved the attention he got because he played beyond what his combine numbers stated. Now, for those who wonder why he did not make, he was beat out by a undrafted  rookie from West Texas AM. Now Sams is better than him at one position, but the other guy can play several positions. This is important when you are a back up because you can fill for anyone he gets injured.

Back to to Mike, he will be OK because he can rush the passer who some team will need or he will be on the Rams PS. He will earn at least 6K for 16 week which is 96K. Not bad at all for 16 weeks of work.

 :nod:

That's what happen to the lower round draft choices.   :nod:  One poster stated he hopes Sam will get a fair deal on "wavers".  Heyal I bet he got a fairer deal than most other 7 round draftees got.  ::)

No one claimed him so at best he's headed to someone's practice squad.

Look, dude had a decent preseason.  He made plays.  If you watched him at Mizzou, dude plays hard from snap to whistle....so I aint got an issue with him being drafted and being on someones practice squad.  I simply smh when folks always wanna make a mountain out of a mole hill.  Dude can freaking play the game....period....eod....is he all world at present?  no....but he aint some chump, jive turkey being given a chance due to his preferences....

give it a rest and move on....bfd, dude is gay....he is in love with a man....and the sun will still rise tomorrow and the earth will continue to rotate on its axis.....

Sams needs to learn to play special teams if he wants to be in the league. He is not that dominating of a pass rusher not to do anything else
